The Bartolomei brothers own this estate high in the hills outside Offida in the Marche. They named it in memory of their grandfather, who worked on the Italian railways. The first time I visited them was in a heavy snowstorm and I had to do the last 1km on foot. However, it proved to be well worth it. What I like about Ciu Ciu is it is organic and the white wines always have lovely soft fruit flavours, whereas the reds are full of Italian style - both bright and flamboyant. This is a wonderfully fruity Italian red. It is full of lovely ripe dark cherry and raspberry flavours with a long and fresh finish. It is soft enough to be drunk by itself but also makes a perfect partner for traditional Italian food and tomato based dishes.

"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."View All Wines by this Winemaker
