WINE OF THE MONTH CLUB SELECTION
Tenute Ferrocinto is located in Calabria,
at the very Southern tip of Italy. It is one
of the most beautiful places in one of the
most beautiful countries in the world.
The winery was founded in 1847 by the
Baron Girolamo Salituri in Vigne, an
area named after the word “vine” by the
Romans because of the great wine which
originated from there. The vineyards and
olive groves are situated on the hillsides
for maximum exposure to the sun.
Ferrocinto is an incrediblymodern facility.
The grapes are crushed, fermented and
placed in tanks covered with an inert gas
to preserve the delicacy of the flavors and
inhibit any type of oxidation that could
darken the wine and cause it to lose its
freshness.
The grape here is called Greco Bianco, so
named because it was actually planted
here by the Greeks some 3,000 years ago.
After fermentation, the wine is left on
the lees - the tiny bits of skin and seeds,
which are a byproduct of fermentation
- for 10 months. This adds structure and
finish.
The result is a spectacular fruit basket
of complex flavors and textures ranging
from guava and red apple to grapefruit,
roasted nuts and slate.
The finish is nothing short of magnificent,
depositing flex of flavor from beginning
to a grand and glorious end.
