Wine Makers

Ciu Ciu Bacchus. by Walter Bartolomei

The bestselling Ciu-Ciu (‘choo-choo’) and its sister Costadoro range is made organically by Walter Bartolomei and his team in the hills of the Marche, on Italy’s Adriatic coast. His wines are among our greatest discoveries, offering Mediterranean flair and flavour at a price that makes them accessible to all.

 

What makes the popularity of these wines even more remarkable is the fact that they are made with relatively little-known, Italian specialities such as Pecorino, Passerino and Montepulciano. These grapes thrive on Walter’s organic vineyards, protected by the Apennines to the west and by the gentle Adriatic sea breezes from the east which help prevent disease.

 

Walter’s style of winemaking is designed with easy enjoyment in mind. He strives for fresh, light and fruity wines which he believes offer more drinking and food-pairing options.  As if proving that point, both the Ciu-Ciu and Costadoro wines have been the top choice for many weddings and parties with our regular customers.

Press Reviews

"Rosso Piceno is from the Marche region of Italy, on the Adriatic coast just east of Tuscany and south of Emillia-Roomagna. This is a typical blend of Sangiovese and Montepulciano and has a bright juicy fruit and a pleasing ripeness on the palate - perfect for mid-week pasta or pizza." Leslie Williams, The Irish Examiner

"Difficult to forget an Italian wine producer called Ciù Ciù because the great grandfather used to work on the railways and this jolly little organically grown red is just the sort of Italian red I wish I could find more of. Ciù Ciù Bacchus Piceno certainly tastes more like Montepulciano with its sweet, mouth-filling fruit than of the more austere Sangiovese." Jancis Robinson

"Strange name, I know, but emphatically a food-friendly delight. It’s all black cherry crispness rounded off with dark chocolate, licorice, cloves and hints of black pepper." Nick Passmore, Forbes.com

As a lover of all things Italian, most notably their wines, I was saddened by the loss of my beloved 'Twiggy' red wine. Those of you who remember will join with me. However a recent visit to a popular Dublin eatery recommended this as an alternative. I was blown away. What a superb wine. Rich, smooth with wonderful length, I simply love it. It now surpasses my old love for 'Twiggy' -farewell. Just don't leave me now Bacchus!
