During the tasting, we surprised our guests with two bottles of Primitivo bottled by our grandparents, one from 1977 and the other from 1969 before the creation of our brand name, Fatalone.

This extraordinary event was made possible with the help of our importers in NYC and the talented Ms. Alice Feiring, an award-winning wine writer specializing in natural wines and creator of The Feiring Line. Alice recently wrote about our vertical tasting in her newsletter. The Feiring Line is an independent natural wine newsletter packed with only the best information on natural wines.
