Bang for Buck: Ferro13

Five wines, representing five different alter egos, by five friends based in Verona; Ferro13 offers us a look into approachable, and always distinctive, interpretations of local Italian varieties. Though it’s the following two – from Tuscany and Sangiovese – that offer the most immediate satisfaction.

2016 Ferro13 ‘Hacker’ Sangiovese
Features black cherry and clean red fruits, with bright acidity and a lick of tannin to support. Serious value. Tuscany, $25

2017 Ferro13 ‘Nerd’ Nero d’Avola
Brambly dark fruits, Nero d’Avola’s signature character, set the tone here alongside floral spice and smoky jube fruit – all in an easy-to-drink package. Sicily, $20
