ABOUT THE PRODUCER
About Cirelli La Collina Biologica Vino Rosso
Cirelli La Collina Biologica Vino Rosso is a youthful and fresh version of Montepulciano. Bright red berries and cherries, smoky herbs, spice, and sandy tannins. A fantastic pizza wine. Grapes are destemmed and gently crushed, then transferred to a stainless steel tank. The maceration period is short and takes not more than one week. 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.
