Fabulas is a collaboration between a group of farmers, friends and a fabulous winemaker. The vineyards of Fabulas winery are located in the municipality of Pretoro (602 m a.s.l.) in the Majella National Park. Here you can really feel the influence of the massif mountain that gives its name to the park, and even though only 35 km far away there is the sea its mitigation effect is almost absent.

Montepulciano is a native grape variety to the area between Marche and Abruzzo. Several documents dating back to 1700 indicate that it is originally from Torre de 'Passeri in the province of Pescara.

This is a single vineyard wine which comes from a plot named Fara: a small vineyard farmed organically and biodynamically where sheep wander around, controlling the vineyard flora and fertilizing the area.

A clenched but fruity natural red wine with plenty of character. Deep cherry colour with aromas of blackberry preserve, bitter chocolate and fresh coffee along with almond as it develops. Powerful opening taste, perfectly dosed between tannins and acidity.  Mouth filling with plenty of stoney minerality on the finish.

Fantastic with matured red beef and ground game, as well as vegetable gratin and fresh cheeses. 

About the Winery

Fabulas

Fabulas is a collaboration between a group of farmers, friends and a fabulous winemaker. The vineyards of Fabulas winery are located in the municipality of Pretoro (602 m a.s.l.) in the Majella National Park. Even though the vinelands are only 35km away from the Adriatic sea, its influence is almost entirely blocked by the mountain ranges that surround the property. Although Abruzzo is a wine region often misunderstood, Fabulas, along with a few other noteworthy producers, have been elevating Abruzzo wines through quality growing practices and stellar winemaking.

The wines of Fabulas and their labels represent a journey through history, traditions and values – their collection of seven low-intervention wines are inspired by the local folklores of Abruzzo, each bottle portrays one of the seven women warriors who once gracefully served the region.
