Fanòi
Salento IGT Primitivo

In 1993, when I worked my first vintage as my father Augusto’s apprentice, I began to know and love this wonderful grape variety. Since that time, I have been able understand yet another piece of its enormous potential with every vintage. Its soul is powerful and unmitigated. And each year, my ambition to give it the elegance of world’s great wines has grown.
