Stefano Girelli - The Wine People
We have worked with Stefan Girelli for over 25 years, a relationship that has yielded many exceptional wines, from everyday drinking to fine Chianti estate wines.
In 2009 Stefano established a new business called ‘The Wine People’ in partnership with Frenchman, Philippe Marx, and Dutchman Peter Kosten. They have combined their skill and experience to bring affordable good value wines from across Italy, with the help of renowned Italian winemaker Stefano Chioccioli who makes all the wines. (Please look separately for the superb Chiantis from Chioccioli.) All vineyards are situated on gentle hillside slopes in the Treviso province. Vines are Cordon trained and density is 4-5,000 plants per hectare.
Vivid red in colour with gentle purple tones. Fresh on the palate and packed with red berries and delicate sweet spices. The palate is smooth, yet with a lively acidity. This is a very well balanced wine, with a spicy and long lasting finish.
An ideal accompaniment to fish.
