Cirelli, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Anfora 2018Regular price $34.00 Save $-34.00
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.
This is the flagship bottle of the amphora line. The Montepulciano takes a different path by ageing in amphora (clay pots) instead of stainless steel.
