The World Atlas of Wine – 7th Edition

thumbnail of worldatlasofwine_7thed_2013Maybe the highest honour we could have ever desired to receive. Our Fatalone Organic Wines selected in the 7th edition, the latest, of the World Atlas of Wine by Jancis Robinson and Hugh Johnson: the most comprehensive and in-depth overview of the wines and the geographical areas of wine production from all over the world edited by the two most renowned and respected opinion leaders in the wine journalism world. Our Fatalone Primitivo Riserva was selected among the four most representative wines of Southern Italy with the assertion: “one of Puglia’s most consistently complex Primitivos”. The organic and 100% sustainable Fatalone winery is also particularly proud to have been mentioned among the most “notable producers” from Puglia and the only “notable producer” in our appellation area: the D.O.C. Gioia del Colle.

Jancis Robinson Purple Pages: “Can Primitivo age?” by Walter Speller

After participating in our Third Historic Vertical Tasting with 8 vintages of Fatalone Riserva during “Radici del Sud 2013”, Walter Speller offers an enthusiastic, detailed and honest description of each of our vintages in his article “Can Primitivo age?” on the Jancis Robinson’s Purple Pages. Mr. Speller, internationally renowned wine writer, is in charge of the Italian wine reviews for Jancis Robinson’s blog. Not only does Mr. Speller share his invaluable tasting notes attesting to the fact that Fatalone Primitivo organic wines from Puglia can and do age well but he concludes that “it took the likes of Fatalone to correct that black-and-white image” of the Primitivo to the world!
