This Italian white wine has a very attractive nose, showing real elegance with delicious citrus and floral minerality. Vanilla and green apple in the mouthwith a nutty richness that leads to a flinty mineral finish, stunning!
The bestselling Ciù Ciù (‘choo-choo’) 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. And, if you were curious about the name, it does indeed translate as "choo-choo." Yes, as in a train. A name that pays homage to his grandfather who was involved in the railroad.
Ciù Ciù wines are certified organic and vegan and Walter continues to pursue sustainability through wastewater, energy and biodiversity projects. His wines use Italian speciality grapes like Passerino, Montepulciano and Sangiovese. These grapes thrive on Walter's vineyards, producing wine perfect for easy enjoyment. He strives for fresh, light and fruity wines which offer more drinking and food pairing options. Just some of the reasons Ciù Ciù is a favourite for parties and among our most popular wedding wines.
"Tingling acidity and attractive almond nutty flavours to match with roast chicken and walnut and thyme stuffing."
"Light nose yet moreish palate showing mandarin fruit and a creamy texture on the palate."
"Appealing notes of orange peel, melon and lime zest on the nose, leading into a creamy mouthfeel."
The Ciù Ciù Organic winery is located in the heart of the Piceno hills, at Offida (Ascoli Piceno), in the Rosso Piceno Superiore production area and its vineyards extend over an area of 150 hectares.
