Wine Region: Abruzzo, Italy
"The Francesco Cirelli Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is perhaps the finest Montepulciano on our shelf right now. This wine somehow combines eclectic elements of freshness, fruit concentration, rusticity, and elegance. Simply, all the fixings of a great Montepulciano d'Abruzzo."
--Codey Foster, Wine Director
About the Winery:
Francesco Cirelli is a rising star in Abruzzo. He is a farmer and winemaker who is ready to challenge conventions and push the boundaries. He chose to locate in Abruzzo because his roots are there and he fell in love with Agricola Cirelli the first time he saw it. He now runs a well-rounded farm with vineyards, olive trees, garlic, spelt, wheat, barley, figs and geese.
