Farnese's winecellar was completely renovated in 2004 to include state-of-the-art equipment and a special cellar for barrel aging certain wines.
Joint owners Valentino Sciotti and Camillo De Luliis capture the Farnese philosophy in two words Progetto Qualità. This refers to the stringent series of quality control criteria that guide every step from the vineyard to the bottle. Everyone on the Farnese team upholds these demanding standards.
As Valentino explains, "the latest harvest alone saw us employ 6 highly experienced oenologists, all with a very solid reputation, 4 of whom had worked for some of the top wineries in France and southern Italy."
