"Ferraio is a blacksmith referring to difficult to farm soils. Ferraio takes its name from the ancient craft of blacksmiths who were traditionally important figures in Tuscan farms. The keys out of Purgatory, according to Dante: one silver and one gold. They are needed to enter the place of atonement and begin climbing the stairs towards Paradise. Just as the keys are means of entry, the wine is a tool to elevate the spirit towards what is good.
The 4 grape varieties are vinified separately. The winemaking is conducted with finesse and a delicateness to extract only the noble tannins and to avoid the development of rough or vegetal notes. After fermentation, part of Ferraio is aged in bottle while the other is done in steel, both for around one year. Ferraio is a wine with a bright character. Very pleasant floral notes of violet and hyacinth as well as those of red fruit such as blackberries and currants. It has a good structure and body, but remains an easy to drink and refreshing wine."
