Farnese Fantini Montepulciano D'Abruzzo DOC
Awesome value from Italy!

Farnese Fantini Montepulciano D'Abruzzo DOC

2015, Abruzzo Italy

Cheese Pizza Vegetarian
  • Farnese's massively popular, awesome value Montepulciano red from Abruzzo in Italy!
  • Medium bodied, juicy and bright
  • Gold medal winner (Mundus Vini 2016, Germany)

You might remember this label used to have lycra-clad cyclists on the bottle (Farnese were the sponsors of the Giro D'Italia cycle race). They've ditched the men in tight shorts and gone for a much better modern, stylish looking label.

The good news is the juice behind the label is as good as ever too. A cracker of a wine, it's medium-bodied, juicy and bright that works magic with food -  pizza, pasta, meat or cheese!

Pronouncing Italian wine names can be a bit of a mouthful, but don’t let it put you off!
 
Farnese (pronounced far – nay – see) is the producer
Fantini (pronounced fan-tee-nee) is the name of the label
Montepulciano (pronounced monti – pull – chee – arno) is the grape
D’Abruzzo (pronounced da brutzo) is the region
DOC (Denominazione di Origine Controllata) is the second level of a four tier Italian wine classification system (DOCG, DOC, IGP/IGT and finally Vino da Tavola, table wine or as we call it...plonk for plonkers!)

The lowdown: 13% alc / 750ml / Cork
