NOTES BY OUR SOMMELIERS
👁 a beautiful straw yellow with greenish reflections;
👃🏻 on the nose the prevailing aromas are fruity (especially spring wild flowers) enriched by nice notes of herbs
👄 on the palate it is harmonious, savoury, fresh and with a long persistence.
This Vermentino stands out for its sapidity and freshness. For this reason it goes very well with first courses and fish main courses, especially if of Ligurian tradition. We recommend it with spaghetti allo scoglio.
WINE-MAKING AND REFINEMENT
This white wine comes from a pure expression of the Vermentino vine, from vineyards grown in the most vocated areas of the Bonassola hills on the coast of Liguria. The grapes are left to macerate for a short period and then pressed, the must obtained is then left to decant. The lighter part is fermented in steel barrels at a controlled temperature. In order to keep the olfactory qualities intact, the wine is bottled as soon as vinification is completed.

its sapidity and taste-olfactory intensity.
The estate is located in Liguria, in Bonassola, in the La Spezia province. The climate is Mediterranean, with strong daily and seasonal temperature fluctuations, which favourably condition the aromatic character of the grapes. The vineyards rise from sea level to over 500-600 metres, where, even on the hottest days, the humidity is mitigated by cool sea breezes, which definitely limit fungal attacks on the grapes. The lime-rich soils of the western side provide the wines with good minerality, while the clayey soils of the eastern side give structure and softness. The vines cultivated are mainly albarola, bosco, ciliegiolo, sangiovese and vermentino.
The Cà du Ferrà winery is located in Bonassola, in the province of La Spezia; the vineyards, on the region's famous terraces, are cultivated in rows and pergola style, all facing south at 400 metres above sea level: they face the sea and extend over 4 hectares divided between 4 different villages, including Bonassola, Riomaggiore, Vernazza and Levanto, also passing through the Cinque Terre National Park.
The winery was established in the hills of Levanto by Antonio Zoppi, originally from Bonassola, and Aida Forgione, originally from Campania, who together with their son Davide manage this winery nestled in the green hills of Levanto, where viticulture is a difficult business. The vineyards in the Riomaggiore area can only be reached by monorail, the characteristic small train introduced in the 1980s in these lands to make viticulture just a little more practicable.
The vines and land of Cà du Ferrà are located on steep slopes, overlooking the sea: viticulture is decidedly heroic. The cultivations of Cà du Ferrà extend over the hills of Levanto and look out over the sea, benefiting from an incredible climate of constant sunshine and a tireless sea breeze that cradles the grapes and soils, guaranteeing high quality wines.
