Cracka Review

Yes, you read that right- Drink now till 2050....!!

Simply put, this is a monster- built for those who enjoy big, thick, viscous, rich wines. It will last a lifetime, but most of us here have concluded that its ridiculously over the top flavour is best enjoyed in the next 5-10 years.

With the last few editions (Ediziones) of this wine receiving perfect scores of 99/99 from Italy's James Halliday, Luca Maroni, this wine is starting to look like it will end up with an average close to the great Don Bradman...and yes, its that good!! Load up.

Winemaker's Notes

Vintage: NV Colour: Red Bottle Capacity: ml 750 Production Area: Notaresco, Ortona, Sava, Manduria

Vinification: Soft stalk-stripping. Maceration-fermentation for 25 days. Malolactic fermentation in barriques followed by 13 months maturation. Sensory Features: Very deep garnet red. Very intense and persistent with notes of cherry and blackcurrant, herbs, cinnamon, cloves, cocoa, liquorice and hints of mineral.

Great structure, good balance between alcohol and freshness, velvety tannins, very persistent with a long finish, ready to drink, or can well be aged for long Best served with: excellent with rich first courses, red meat and with medium and long seasoned cheese Serving Temperature: 18 °C Alcoholic Content: 14%

Idea of the Wine: This is to prove it is possible to make a great red wine, that is expression of the enormous patrimony of autochthonous vines that we have in Italy, with the best characteristic of taste and fragrance, that seldom can be found in a high level wine like this.

Expert Reviews

Luca Maroni says
Sensations: his appearance in the glass is a chromatic event of exceptional expressive power. A black purplish that only a maximally concentrated wine, made from grapes fully matured and transformed with pure oenology, rarely succeeds to show off.

Qualities that make Edizione Cinque Autoctoni - Farnese Vini the best red wine tasted this year. A wine of maximum native density, that without mole and oxidation, evokes a pure blackberry juice. Chapeau to one of the most virtuous glasses not only of Abruzzo.
Now till 2035
