Variety: Montepulciano d'Abruzzo
Francesco Cirelli is a rising star in Abruzzo and has already gained a cult following with select sommeliers in big cities around the world. He pushes boundaries in Abruzzo, where conventional farming has been the norm. Spraying chemicals and overworking the earth is not what he is interested in. After Francesco finished school, he quickly realized he wanted to pursue his love for lamb viticulture and all things wine. He purchased the Estate in 2003 and viewed the grounds as a whole working farm. He now has a mixture of crops and animals he raises, and each element works with each other to make the overall farm function.
“Cerasuolo” comes from the local dialect word “cirasce” which means cherry. This is the cherry of Abruzzo, undergoing a short maceration period and then an immediate pressing. The result is a dark intense rosato that is still delicate and juicy. It’s aged in steel to keep this Montepulciano d’Abruzzo fresh.
