Our organic Gioia del Colle DOC Primitivo Riserva Fatalone 2018 was recently featured in the prestigious and internationally renowned, Decanter Magazine, October 2021 edition. Our Riserva Fatalone 2018 was awarded a top score: 94 points.
Alessandra Piubello, a talented wine journalist, writes about “Top 20 Puglian Primitivo”. Only twenty wineries are featured, all of them representing excellent wines in our region. When describing the appellation Gioia del Colle DOC, Piubello states: “Here, the Primitivo expresses a particular style: elegant, fresh, savoury and cellarworthy.” In the article, our Primitivo Riserva Fatalone was described as “emblematic of its variety and terroir” and “astoundingly beautiful”.
Undoubtedly, we are honored to have been included in the list and specially proud to represent our territory and the Gioia del Colle DOC.
The wine guide ViniBuoni d’Italia 2021 awarded our Gioia del Colle DOC Primitivo Riserva Fatalone 2017 its prestigious Crown: the maximum recognition awarded by the guide to Excellent Wines. Our Puglia IGT Primitivo Fatalone “Teres” 2019 and Fatalone “Spinomarino” 2019 also received top scores.

Our organic Fatalone Gioia del Colle DOC Primitivo Riserva 2015 was awarded with the Silver Medal at the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles 2019. We are very proud of this recognition as the validity and rigor of their assessment is recognized worldwide.
The Concours Mondial de Bruxelles, as its title suggests, is an international wine competition in which wines are assessed by an equally international tasting panel that includes oenologists, journalists, wine critics, researchers and buyers.
In November 2018 in New York City, we carried out the 30th anniversary historic vertical tasting of our Fatalone Gioia del Colle DOC Primitivo Riserva dating back to 1988. 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.
Our Gioia del Colle DOC Primitivo Riserva Fatalone 2008 was awarded “Le Corone Le Decido Io,” a CROWN awarded by wine enthusiasts and attendees during the final competition held in Buttrio in 2016 for the wine guide, ViniBuoni d’Italia 2017. We are especially proud of these type of awards as they are assigned by our first and most loyal supporters, the consumers.
