It is called Five native and its most evident peculiarity is its being a table wine that blends 5 grapes from two regions, Abruzzi and Puglia: Montepulciano, Sangiovese, Primitivo, Negramaro and Malvasia Nera. It is a vision of the great British journalist Hugh Johnson who, at the dawn of Farnese cellar’s adventure, in 1996, the years in which the international wines  were a big success, had the nerve to suggest the owner: “You Italians have so many native wines that you should truly bet on them”

A statement maybe taken for granted nowadays but revolutionary at the time.

    History

    It was the year 1582 when the princess Margherita of Austria, daughter of the Emperor Carlo V and wife of Ottavio Farnese, purchased for 52000 ducats the town of Ortona. Fascinated by the healthy air and the splendid lands decided immediately to build a palace on the seaside to pass long periods of rest. “Marghareta”, that’s how she loved being called, gave her lands of Abruzzi a great boost to produce refined wines, soon appreciated soon in the banquets of the main European courts. And, as a sign of gratitude for who has made them famous in the world, the farmers have maintained the Farnese name of the wines.
