Estate: Pioneering winemaker, clay amphora innovator and all-around rock star of Abruzzo, 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 farmed using organic, sustainable and biodynamic methods.
Winemaking: Grapes are from a friend and neighbor of Francesco whose vineyards are certified organic. Spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts 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: Orange gold in colour, with aromas of orange, lemon, hay and a trace of wildflowers. Orange zest, lemon, saline minerality, a wisp of fresh bread and citrus acidity are buoyed by fine, consistent fizz. Pink grapefruit lingers on the fizzy, mineral driven finish. Super gluggable, bright and crisp.
