Cirelli La Collina Biologica Montepulciano d’Abruzzo DOC 2017

Estate: Pioneering winemaker, clay amphora innovator and “rising star” of Abuzzo, Francesco Cirelli farms 23 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. La Collina Biologica is an institute for sustainable farming ideas and initiatives. For more information on this incubator project, click here.

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

Winemaking: Hand-harvested grapes are from vines 6 years in age, in calcium rich, clay soils. Spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel tanks, aged for 6 months in stainless steel.

Tasting Notes: Dark violet-red in colour with aromas of black cherry, strawberry, flinty minerality and a trace of peppery spice. Blackberry, black cherry, tangy cherry, plum, earth and crushed white peppercorn are accented by silky tannins and fresh acidity. Dark fruit and an herbaceous hint linger on the dry, fruit driven finish. Clean and pure, a spectacular expression of Montepulciano.
