Francesco Cirelli Trebbiano d’Abruzzo DOC 2015

Estate: Pioneering winemaker and “rising star” of Abuzzo, Francesco Cirelli farms 22 hectares of certified organic land in the sandy hills of Colline Teramane near the village of Atri, 8kms from the Adriatic Sea. In addition to the vines, the estate includes olive trees, fig trees, garlic, spelt, wheat, barley, figs and geese, all farmed using organic, sustainable and biodynamic methods.

An innovator amongst clay amphora ageing, Cirelli designed his own amphora and had them custom built in Tuscany. The amphora “have special stainless steel seals on the top of them that assist in preventing oxidation and allow his wines to remain fresh and vibrant” yet still able to benefit from the neutral vinification clay amphora are renowned for.

Philosophy: “Producing artisan wines reflecting the terroir and the emotions of the artisan.”

Winemaking: Indigenous yeast fermentation of hand-harvested grapes. No fining, filtering or added sulphites. Vegan friendly.

Tasting Notes: Deep gold in colour with aromas of lemon, chalk minerals and a trace of nuts. Lemon, pear, apple, honey and warm summer earth are framed by bright acidity and a nutty finish. Soft, round and smooth, your glass will empty rather swiftly.
