Trained as an economist, Francesco Cirelli left the profession to pursue a career in winemaking, stemming from an infatuation, or moral obligation, to farm with respect to the earth. He purchased his land, an azienda agricola (farm winery), in 2003, and with his wife Michela, devoted the property to farming olives, garlic, spelt, barley, and figs, as well as tiny vineyards of trebbiano and montepulciano - all organically. Francesco's secret is lower yields for more concentrated fruit, but also lowering the amount of sulfur to avoid masking the terroir. This montepulciano comes from soils with calcium and clay, and is fermented with natural yeasts in stainless steel. It shows great balance between fruit, acid, and tannin, with predominantly red fruit at the forefront. This wine is super easy-drinking, but very well-made, clean and fresh. Certified organic, low-intervention, vegan.
