Ciu Ciu - 2018 Piceno Montepulciano/Sangiovese
Montepulciano waltzes with Sangiovese is this charming organic wine from the little known Marche region in central Italy. Ciu Ciu has been organic since the mid-eighties (whoa), and you can reallllllllly taste the purity of fruit in this medium-bodied gem. Dark cherry, blackberry and plum mingle with that Italianate savouriness and rusticity, keeping you gulping until all the pizza has been eaten. With air it really blooms, but a quaffer like this probably won't get the chance! So approachable, so friendly.
