“Ferzo,” in Italian refers to a patch of fabric that, when stitched together with others, creates a sail. The union of the finest viticultural “patches” in Abruzzo gives life to Ferzo, a distinctive line of wines which embody the best of region’s indigenous grape varieties.
About the Vineyard
The vineyards that source Ferzo Montepulciano d'Abruzzo are found in the rolling hills that stretch between the Adriatic Sea in the East to the Appenine Mountains in the West. The relationship between moutnains and sea is always felt in this part of Italy as temperature variations yield a constant breeze known here as the "brezza di terra".
Ferzo Montepulciano is the product of 14 - 16 days' fermentation in stainless steel tanks held at a controlled temperature. Gentle extraction methods such as frequent pumpovers ensure rich color and presence of tannin while aeration helps to stabilize.
Deep purple with ruby reflections, this is Montepulciano d’Abruzzo at its most loveable. A perfect balance between bright sour cherry and wild berries with hints of pepper and spice, all held together by elegant tannins and palate-cleansing acidity.
With its power, presence, and tannic structure, Ferzo Montepulciano is ideal paired alongside braised meats, grilled vegetables, hardy pastas, or sharp cheeses.
