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”.

The Feiring Line: “Primitivo Don’t Age: Meet Fabulous Fatalone”

thumbnail of Primitivo_Dont_Age_Meet_ Fabulous_ Fatalone_ The_ Feiring_LineIn 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.


Raw Wine 2018, 4-5th November in New York City

For the first time this year, we presented our Fatalone Organic Wines at Raw Wine 2018 in New York City.  RAW WINE brings together “over 140 of the world’s best low-intervention organic / biodynamic/natural wine growers.” We introduced all of Fatalone wines: Gioia del Colle DOC Primitivo Riserva, Gioia del Colle DOC Primitivo, Puglia IGT Primitivo “Teres” e il nostro vino bianco, Puglia IGT Greco “Spinomarino”.

To be a part of Raw Wine, our wines had to pass a strict selection process. Thankfully, Raw Wine Fair’s entry requirements are in complete agreement with our own philosophy of producing organic wines, using only our own hand-picked grapes, low levels of sulphites, spontaneous fermentation and sustainable practices without sacrificing quality and taste.

We were particularly proud to have been the only winery representing Puglia in this wonderful event.
