De Fermo lives a stone's throw away from Valentini. And the two share more than simple proximity. They make profound examples of Cerasuolo.
I love crisp, gulpable rosés, but there's the rare occasion that I taste a rosé that reminds me that the category has potential for greatness. De Fermo's did just that.
De Fermo is a relatively new producer to me, but having tasted the past two vintages of the Cerasuolo I include it amongst the most serious ones that I know. Think of producers like Simone, Cotat, Horiot, Tempier and Valentini.
