The story! Montepulciano — the grape, not the town — is one of those wines which is made to be easy-drinking and perfect for food. This wine is completely un-oaked and certified organic; Francesco Cirelli also grows olives, figs, and barley on his land. By practicing polyculture in this way, Cirelli bolsters the health of his vines naturally.

 

In your mouth: I'm so silky and soft, you won't be able to put me down. You'll find mellow notes of dark plum, blackberry, and velvety tannins when you take a sip.
