The Michelin guide for the restaurants, the Vini d'Italia by publisher Gambero Rosso for the best Italian wines. The 25th edition was recently published, judging on the quality of the wine and its continuity over the years. Michelin gives stars, the Gambero gives glasses. Tre Bicchieri (3 glasses) is the ultimate rating. The guide is 1000 pages thick, rated 2,350 producers and more than 1,000 wines. However, this guide remains the most important wine assessor in Italy and the wines of Gianfranco Fino have been voted the absolute number 1. Gianfranco Fino started this domain in 2004 when he bought a 50-year-old Primitivo vineyard. Despite the recent start, the domain is already a reference point in the region. The wines already have cult status among wine journalists and aficionados. Extreme quality.

Jo comes from Jonino, the Italian and Latin name for the Ionian Sea. The Manduria area that is located here is the area where the Negramaro grape comes into its own. The Jo is the very best Negramaro wine from a 40-50 year old vineyard. No pesticides, no fertilizer but optimum conditions and the art of winemaking. 9 months of wood aging gives a great full-bodied, robust wine with red and black fruit. Dark in color with hints of laurel and cacaco. Only a few thousand bottles are made of the Gianfranco Jp. This beautiful double magnum is in a beautiful wooden box.

Vineyard for 2016 Gianfranco Fino Salento Negramaro Jo Jeroboam (3 liter)

Start winegrowing in 2004 and make the best wine in Italy 10 years later? Sounds like a romantic dream, but Gianfranco Fino has only just done it. He started in Manduria with a small plot of land with 50-year-old Primitivo vines, striving for an extremely low yield per vine and, unlike many other winemakers, relying on the naturally occurring wild yeasts. Slowly he expanded the number of hectares and also planted Negroamaro.

A perfectionist with an eye for detail who does everything differently in the vineyard than the rest. He even lets his grapes dry on the vine for a while for even more flavor and sugar concentration. Although this reduces the alcohol percentage to a great height, without disturbing the balance in the wine. That drive and idiosyncratic approach has ensured that Fino's wines are among the absolute top in Italy, as witnessed by the superlatives in Gambero Rosso. His achievements have also definitively established Puglia's name as a reference for quality wine.
