Farnese   Farnese Logo

Valentino Sciotti and Farnese play a dual role in southern Italy. Based in Ortona, Valentino and his team of winemakers, including Marco Flacco and consultant Alberto Antonini, love the indigenous varieties from this part of Italy.

They strive to raise the profile of southern Italy's lost or under-rated wines and undiscovered or struggling grape-growing areas.

They look after the winemaking for Gran Sasso in Ortona, Vesevo in Avellino, Vigneti del Vulture in Acerenza, Lamadoro and Masseria Pietrosa in San Marzano, Tufarello in Puglia and Vigneti Zabu in Sicily.
