Nicoletta de Fermo 'Concrete' Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2017
The De Fermo family has called Abruzzo home for multiple generations, with family history dating back to the late 18th century. The winery is now headed by Stefano Papetti and his wife Nicoletta De Fermo, who decided to leave the world of law to pursue winemaking. Since 2008, the duo has been farming 17 hectares of vines with biodynamic principles, including fermenting all fruit with native yeasts and leaving all final wines unfined and unfiltered. ‘Concrete’ is a varietal Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, fermented and aged for 8-12 months in concrete. The final wine is energetic and ripe, showing juicy notes of dark berries, cherries, wet rocks, and herbs.
