Francesco Cirelli is a firm believer in biodynamic diversity, but his passion for natural wine has inspired him in particular

In a picturesque area, about an hour north of Tiberio, lies the charming farm of Francesco and Michela Cirelli. Here, where vines make up only a small part of the diverse soil, they have created a biodynamic oasis.

Francesco Cirelli grew up in the coastal town of Pescara in Abruzzo and, although he comes from a farming family, he longed for a deeper connection with nature. In 2003, he bought his land and began growing figs, olives and chickpeas as well as breeding animals alongside 4 hectares of vines. Anyone who wants to enjoy Abruzzo should take advantage of the Cirelli's Bed & Breakfast offer.

Cirelli wines are bursting with saltiness and minerality and underline the potential of Abruzzo

Francesco produces two different styles of wine. The first, made from bought-in grapes, matures briefly in steel tanks and stands for freshness and liveliness. His Trebbiano d'Abruzzo impresses with its brightness and salty notes, while the Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is balanced and refreshingly tart.

"The power of wine to bring people together fascinates me", explains Francesco Cirelli. "With wine you get to know people. There are no borders or political differences."

The grapes from the estate's own vineyard, on the other hand, are all matured in amphorae and have a completely different characteristic. The Trebbiano d'Abruzzo is complex, with different dimensions and a more intense texture, while the Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is structured, youthfully fresh, but also with the potential to mature.

For us, Francesco Cirelli is the new discovery of the year, waking the sleepy Abruzzo region from its slumber with his mineral Pecorino, Trebbiano and Montepulciano.
