Fatalone, Az. Agr. Pasquale Petrera


At the end of the 18th century Nicola Petrera, an ancestor of the current owner, chose the Spinomarino hill, the most aired and sunny one in the Gaudella area, to grow Primitivo grapes. Filippo Petrera has preserved both tradition and passion for this Primitivo until this very day. Indeed Fatalone were the first winery to bottle in 1987 Gioia del Colle D.O.C. Primitivo as a single grape variety and the only producer of the D.O.C. to carry out a ten vintage vertical tasting of Primitivo with their Fatalone Riserva. The family ensures the greatest care in every detail: organic farming, grape selection, processing and bottling. The family workonly their own estate grown grapes on 6 hectares of vineyards. Fatalone operate without use of irrigation and with their winery powered exclusively with solar energy. In their own words, “we want our wines to be the most authentic expression of our grapes, our land and our personality – in one word, our roots.”
