This powerful wine is full of dark berry and dried fruit flavours, such as fig and dried cherry. It's so very expressive, velvety smooth and sweetly fruited you cannot help but enjoy it immensely. Ruby red intense colour with slight burgundy hues. Scent typical of very ripe fruits and slightly toasted wood and spices, with some balsamic notes. Full bodied, rich in minerality and freshness, balanced smooth taste of black sour cherry and plum tending to velvety with ripe fruity notes of blackberry and mulberry, and spices like clove and cacao. The feature that makes our natural authentic Primitivo of Gioia del Colle unique is the toasted almond aftertaste.

Organic process: Spontaneous fermentation of the must in contact with the skin for 240-300 hours at controlled temperature and just with autochthonous yeasts. Open-cycle process with frequent pumping of the must over the pomace. Natural malolactic fermentation. No addition of sulphites during the whole vinification process. Only after the end of the malolactic, re-integration of the sulphites lost during the vinification steps to restore the initial natural value. Aged for 12 months in wine stainless steel tanks, 12 months in Slavonic oak 750-liter-casks with the application of music therapy to optimize the spontaneous microxigenation process and improve the fining of the wine, 6 months in bottle.

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 Gioia del Colle in three different tiers, and one bianco made from the local Greco grape. A series of several biodynamic philosophies lead Pasquale in his practices, and it is not so farfetched to learn that the oak-aged wine is accompanied by calm music, when tasting the lively yet serious wines from this house. All of the wines see only stainless steel during fermentation, and when oak is used, it is always large and very old Slavonian oak. Sulfites are not used during vinification, and only a minimum but stabilizing amount is used at bottling, leading to a purity of fruit, earth, and elegance that can only be experienced on the tongue Naturally, this line of wines can surely compete with some of the greatest wines of Italy and is serious enough to be drank for years to come.
