ABOUT THE PRODUCER
Azienda Agricola Petrera Pasquale (Fatalone) has been making wine in the Gioia del Colle region since the late 1800s. Like many producers in the area, bottling wine came late; most wines were sold in sfuzo, where locals would bring jugs and fill up from the tank. It was only in 1987 that the first bottles of ‘Fatalone’ were produced. A winery with an intense dedication to the earth, their certified organic farming practices prove to make exceptional Primitivo Gioia del Colle in three different styles, and one bianco made from the local Greco. Their belief in organic principles and renewables extends to the winery where only solar power is used to power the entire production. Fatalone is a zero-emission winery. Stainless steel is used for primary fermentation in all of the wines, and when oak is used, it is always large old Slavonian oak. Sulfur is not used during vinification, and only a minimum but stabilizing amount is used at bottling, leading to a remarkable purity of fruit.
