Azienda Agricola Petrera Pasquale has been making wine in the Gioia del Colle region since the late 1800's. As with many wineries in the area, only 5 generations later did the family begin bottling, and the first bottles of 'Fatalone' were produced in 1987. A winery with intense dedication to the earth, their certified organic farming practices prove to make exceptional Primitivo.
Fatalone’s Primitivo Gioia del Colle is a classic expression of the local Gioia del Colle clone. Having spent 6 months in stainless steel, 6 months in Slavonic oak, and then 6 months again in stainless before it relaxes in the bottle for 6 more months, this wine’s structure and balance is so beautifully delicate, while remaining quite pronounced. Black sour cherry, toasted bitter almond, and fresh turned earth, are accompanied by fantastic acidity and a very long finish.
