Intermarché-Wanty unveils its special jersey in honour of Vini Fantini

For the third year in a row, the eight riders of team Intermarché-Wanty will be wearing a special jersey during the Giro d’Italia, in honour of their Italian wine partner Vini Fantini. The new jersey, manufactured by Verge Sport, will be unveiled during the team presentation at the Valentino Castle in Turin this Thursday.
During this 107th edition of the Giro, which starts this Saturday 4th of May from the Piedmontese town of Venaria Reale, the peloton will cross four regions in which the Fantini Group is active: Abruzzo, Basilicata, Campania and Tuscany.

The colour palette of the new jersey combines shades of blue with the fluorescent yellow that characterises  the Walloon World Team, as a reference to the Adriatic coast and the hills that surround the headquarters of Vini Fantini in Ortona in the Abruzzo region. 

Belgian designer has made a link to Italian cuisine with a playful presentation of all kinds of Italian pasta, including linguini, farfalle, gnocchi and ravioli.

The position of the VINI FANTINI logo is clearly visible underneath the title partners on the stomach and now also on the back, in addition to its usual position on the left side of the bibshorts.

"Two years ago, we accomplished a memorable Giro d'Italia, wearing a special jersey in honour of our Italian partner Vini Fantini for the first time. Last season, my teammates also shone in a kit in a lighter colour palette, which reflected the light blue of the Italian sky above the vineyards. I'm pleased that this year a predominantly blue pattern has been chosen again, in reference to the Adriatic Sea, as I love this colour. The combination with our traditional neon yellow creates a perfect synergy that will allow us to stand out in the peloton. I can't wait to be at the start of my second Giro this Saturday wearing this special kit and to make all our Italian partners proud, especially Vini Fantini!"

“We are incredibly grateful to the team for dedicating us the special Vini Fantini kit for the Giro d’Italia. Every stage of the Giro on those iconic roads will be a tribute to the lands where we produce our beloved wine. Watching the athletes ride through the regions of southern Italy, where our grapes come to life, fills us with a deep sense of gratitude and pride. May this kit be a tangible lucky charm for the team and show how strong the team spirit is!"
