Feruni Rosso

La Corte

The family Verrengia Truglio owns these vineyards since 1919 and since then, it take cares of the grapes; it is just from 2013, though, that the owner Mattia Verrengia decided to produce his own wine, celebrating the long tradition and history of this land.

Vineyards on Colle Orlando

The region where La Corte grows its grapes, at the basis of mount Massico, nearby Caserta in the region of Campania, is one of the most ancient wine producing regions in the world. Romans were so great fans of the wines produced around here that they stored them in specific anphorae to distinguish from the other wines. The legend says that it has been Bacchus himself who turned the foot of the mount into amazing vineyards.

In order to celebrate the long history of this wine, La Corte is producing it with the traditional methods, pressing the grapes and leaving part of them macerating inside the press before a second press. The rest of the vinification happens inside stainless steel tanks, as well as the aging.

Color

As you would expect from any Primitivo-based wine, this wine has a deep ruby color, shiny and limpid, with a delicate garnet hue.

Nose

Its perfume is intense, elegant, and complex: in it, lint mixes with red berries, cherry, plum. A spicy nutmeg end

Palate

Round, persistent, full-bodied. The soft tannins are balanced by a good acidity and the flavors confirm the nose sensations: mixed red berries and a spicy closing.

Pairing

Feruni Rosso is  a rich wine but also has a quite high alcohol percentage (14%) which makes it a great pairing for traditional dishes from Campania, where smoked cheese and juicy meat are diffuse. This wine is traditionally paired even with some local fish.

Serving

Let breathe Feruni Rosso for 20 minutes and then serve it in a Baloon glass at 14-18°C.

You can store this wine in your cellar for 7-10 years.
