The “5 Star Wines” is a wine guide and contest organized during VinItaly to evaluate and award the best Italian wines in all of Italy. Within this guide, you’ll find “Wine Without Walls,” a wine contest dedicated to selecting the best “natural” wines in Italy. In order to participate, wines have to be certified organic and, among other requirements, contain low levels of sulfites, less than 40mg.
Our Fatalone Gioia del Colle DOC Primitivo Riserva 2011 and 2012 were both winners. It’s empowering to see, not one, but two of our Riservas among the 17 best natural wines in all of Italy! We remain committed to producing excellent natural wines.
Our Fatalone Organic Wines have been featured in Decanter’s Magazine February 2018 issue along with other excellent Apulian wines in an article titled “Fighting a Dream Climate,” which addresses the Primitivo variety’s proliferation in such a seemingly unwelcoming climate.
“Fatalone works biodynamically, with an impressive carbon-neutral winery. Fans of Fatalone’s Primitivo can decide if they share Pasquale Petrera’s belief in music therapy (a Rudolf Steiner concept), but whatever tunes or pieces the botti are listening to must be having a positive effect, judging by the quality of the wines.”
Within the same piece, our Gioia del Colle DOC Primitivo Fatalone 2015 was picked for the list, “A taste of modern Puglia: Woolf’s 10 wines to try.” Our wine is described as “balanced and fresh” and a true testament to a wine that can “achieve greatness with no oak at all.”
Falstaff, an internationally recognized Austrian Wine Guide, selected and rated two of our Fatalone Organic Wines among other top Apulian wines. The wines were evaluated by an international tasting panel among hundreds of wines.
Our Fatalone Gioia del Colle DOC Primitivo Riserva 2013 was rated 93/100 and our Fatalone Gioia del Colle DOC Primitivo Riserva 2012 was rated 92/100.
Our Fatalone Organic Wines were proudly featured in the Japanese magazine Bella Italia Vol. 5., a widely read monthly focusing on Italian Culture published in Tokyo. The piece focused on the best of Apulian gastronomic culture and tradition. Following a tour of our winery and cellar, our visitors enjoyed a tasting of our organic Fatalone Primitivo Riserva DOC Gioia del Colle and our Bianco Spinomarino Greco IGT Puglia. Our Fatalone Organic Wines have been distributed in Japan since 2000.
