“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 and individual terroirs.
About the Vineyard
The vineyards that source Ferzo Passerina 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 mountains 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 Rosato is derived from 100% Montepulciano grapes. After crush, a delicate hue is transferred to the must during 4 hours of cold maceration. Afterward, the must is quickly separated from the skins and a stainless steel fermentation at low temperature ensues.
Ferzo Rosato is a dusty rose petal with violet reflections. Light and soft on the palate, the wine is juicy, crisp, and delicious. Aromatically, the wine shows plenty of clean, bright cherry, cranberry, white pepper, and sage, with a wonderful bitter almond finish.
Rose wines are outstanding for their versatility. Ferzo Rosato is at home anywhere from apertif hour on an outdoor patio at springtime to accompanying a rustic fisherman's stew or pasta with wild musrhooms on a cold evening.
