Cirelli La Collina Biologica ‘Anarchy’ Vino Bianco Frizzante 2018

Winery: Pioneering winemaker, clay amphora innovator and all around rock star of Abuzzo, Francesco Cirelli farms 23 hectares of certified organic land in the sandy hills of Colline Teramane, 8 kilometers from the Adriatic Sea. In addition to the vines, the estate includes olive trees, fig trees, garlic, spelt, wheat, barley, figs and geese, all low intervention farmed using organic, sustainable and biodynamic methods. For more details on Francesco check out Francesco Cirelli is Walking on the Wild Side in Abruzzo   over at Grape Collective.

Winemaking: Grapes are from a friend and neighbor of Francesco whose vineyards are certified Biologico [organic]. Fermented in autoclave [Metodo Italiano/Metodo Martinotti/Charmat Mathod or tank fermentation, similar to the method used for Lambrusco and Prosecco]. ‘Anarchy’ is a nod to Guzzista Motorcycles and Sons of Anarchy; two things Francesco is a fan of. The wine is intended to be fun and as Francesco says,  to “bring a little bit of anarchy into the day”.

Tasting Notes: Deep gold in colour with aromas of pine nut, lemon, Thai basil, apricot and honey. Lemon, yellow pear, granny smith, buttery bread and saline minerality are buoyed by light fizz and friendly acidity. A creamy, slightly bitter nuttiness lingers between each sip. Super refreshing and gluggable!
