About Cirelli La Collina Biologica Pecorino
Cirelli La Collina Biologica Pecorino is a bright white wine from Abruzzo with that goody funky natty vibe Francisco Cirelli is known for. Juicy citrus and apple fruit. Sea spray and chalky minerality. Super-bright acidity. The grapes are de-stemmed and transferred to the tank where the maceration of 24 hours takes place. The skins are then separated from the juice and softly pressed, then transferred to the stainless steel tank where our indigenous yeasts take over and lead the fermentation process. The wine rests in stainless steel tanks for a period of four months before the bottling.
About Azienda Agricola Cirelli
Agricola Cirelli is an organic farm certified by IMC (doc. n.3194 RV.01), surrounded by 23 hectares of land. All of its production is designed to respect the natural cycles of olive trees, vineyards, horticultural crops, and animal breeding. Crop rotation, natural fertilization, and free-range animal grazing are Agricola Cirelli’s “techniques” of production. This harmonious environment creates supreme-quality olive oil, wine, vegetables, fruit, and meats.
The farm grows its food and wine in total respect of organic agriculture. Nature sets the rules, and it dictates the rhythm of every activity. The animals’ interaction with the land offers natural grazing and fertilization of the vines, which means there is no need to use harmful chemical substances.
Francesco purchased the land in 2003, right after his graduation in Economics at a prestigious European university. Before this, he was a student at the Italian Navy College. He decided to dedicate himself to organic agriculture because of the profound value of working the land (“Right after God, the farmer comes next,” he was told once). He is now helped out by his fiancée, Michela.
His favorite wine is his amphora-fermented wine, as they are truly artisanal containers. There is an obligation to only interact manually with the juice, using nothing other than your body. If you have to clean the vessel, you have to go inside it in your swimsuit to clean the vessel. This makes for a more emotional process and requires more effort. It’s you and the clay vessel, that is all.
