Cirelli Montepulciano 

d'Abruzzo, Italy

 

Cirelli is not your average Montepulciano! Their 23 hectares are farmed organically and with the use of ancient principles, incorporating permaculture, crop rotation, and livestock which nourish the vines. They also make beautiful olive oils. This wine is bright and berry-fruited, a classic Montepulciano d'Abruzzo profile from a true farmer of the vine.

 

A Los Viñateros Bravos 'Hombre en Llamas' 

Itata, Chile

 

If you have been part of our wine club for a while now, you may have been lucky to try one other incredible old-vines wine from the South of Chile, a region completely unlike the mass-planted Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon fields to its north. An inhospitable, sparsely planted, and ancient area, centenarian vines here are not uncommon. This Carignan from ancient vines is an exciting example of what this region, long underrated, is capable of. Give it a light chill and expect a wild wine that speaks of old character - enjoy it with a mushroom sauce, maybe! So expressive.
