NOTES- Cirelli Orange is a skin-contact Trebbiano d'Abruzzo. The grapes are hand-harvested, separated from the stems, and then macerated in stainless steel for about one month.

Gold in color with delicate aromas of lemon, hay, apricot, wildflowers and linseed. Green pear, apple, nectarine, lemon and coriander seed are glossed by fresh acidity. A nutty streak infuses the silky lemon finish. Fresh and super gluggable. Acidity, which can be subdued in a lot of orange wines, is all there – yup, your tongue will start salivating as soon as the wine hits it. Delicious.

Estate: Pioneering winemaker, clay amphora innovator and all-around rock star of Abruzzo, Francesco Cirelli farms 23 hectares of certified organic land in the sandy hills of Colline Teramane, 8 kilometers from the Adriatic Sea. In addition to the vines, the estate includes olive trees, fig trees, garlic, spelt, wheat, barley, figs and geese, all farmed using organic, sustainable and biodynamic methods. La Collina Biologica is an institute for sustainable farming ideas and initiatives.

Philosophy: “Producing artisan wines reflecting the terroir and the emotions of the artisan.”

Winemaking: Hand harvested grapes are from a 2 hectare vineyard with vines averaging 6 years in age, with calcium and clay soils. Fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts, aged in stainless steel. Unfined, unfiltered, and low sulphur.
