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.

Tasting Notes

A full bodied ruby red coloured wine, which is both rich and powerful. The nose is complex with aromas of over-ripe cherries, raspberries, redcurrants, plum spices and chocolate. On the palate, there are flavours of dried fruit, slight raisin character, plums, damsons, garrigue and a hint of spice. The finish is rich and full with good, sweet fruit flavours in an excellent balance.

Food Matches

A superb accompaniment to red meat dishes and cheese.
