A “Ferzo,” in Italian, is a patch of fabric that is stitched together with others to create a sail. The union of the finest viticultural “patches” in Abruzzo gives life to Ferzo, a singular label which embraces the best of region’s indigenous grape varieties.
Location of Vineyard
The vineyards have been passed down from generation to generation and have been cared for with love and passion for decades. These family owned properties, some with only 1 hectare, create a mosaic of small vineyards stretching north to south along the Adriatic coast and east to west from the sea to Majella Mountain. The range of climate and topography offers unparalleled quality and variety. There is a unique climate condition in this territory. When the warm wind blowing from the adriatic sea meets the cool air coming down from the mountains, the temperature drops blowing a cooling wind through the valleys to the sea. This phenomenon is called “brezza di terra” and provides the perfect climate for vine development. Winemaking process from vineyard to bottle led by world-renowned enologist Riccardo Cotarella.
The hand-harvested grapes are softly pressed. The must is then decanted and fermented at a controlled temperature to develop the wine's aromatics.
