The story behind the wine
This wine requires a lot of consideration and passion. Each bunch of grapes are selected with great attention and care then delicately placed in boxes, with the love and attention that you would give to a small child.
The first San Fermo was produced as an experiment in 2001. Marcello created this out of pure curiosity, hence the continuous search to improve and grow with it, year after year.
Now, twenty years on, we are looking at a wine that has taken on wide shoulders, showing us what our family has always taught us, never to be afraid of time. Time and calmness have always been good to us and time and calmness will always lead to a wise and mature wine in the end.
San Fermo is one of the finely selected wines that is made only if the vintage is excellent.
