Cirelli 2019 Pecorino, Abruzzo, Italy

Farming: Organic

Winemaker: Francesco Cirelli

Varieties: Pecorino

Vineyards/History: "I’ve been fortunate enough to grow up in a well off family which allow me to spent a fantastic and dispassionate childhood and to study in the most prestigious schools in EU; My grandparents and my parents spent all their entire life on bettering the social, cultural, economical status of the family, cutting all the links with their origin: the soil. Once I got the graduation in BA I decided to invest my little money on a farm in Abruzzo, the so-called “green region of Europe”. Since 2003 I am therefore trying to reestablish a link between myself and the origin of my Family because I am more then convinced of the goodness of the values within the farming. In fact there is a phrase that I love (but I don’t remember the author): “the farmer is the closest man to God”. This is not to say that I feel close to God, but I would like my children to grow up with a better understanding of the moral values of the soil. That’s all." - Francesco Cirelli
