TWP Wines is run by Stefano Girelli, whose family has been at the heart of Italian winemaking for three generations. Stefano’s portfolio stretches the length of Italy, from the Veneto, to Tuscany, to Puglia and Sicily, and places a strong emphasis on Stefano’s passion for organic methods. Many of the wines are certified organic (and vegan!) and all are made in an eco-friendly way, with a long-term commitment to the environment. Leading consultant winemaker, Stefano Chioccioli, a friend and colleague of Stefano Girelli for many years, uses the best possible indigenous grapes to create wines with great quality and individual character. The Wine People’s wines speak of their terroir.
Grapes are selected from the best vineyards in the Trapani area of Sciliy. The grapes are picked in early September – about 7-10 days before the Nero d’Avola harvest for red wines – in order to retain the ideal acidity level for making a rosé. The grapes are carefully selected for optimum ripeness.
100% Nero d’Avola. After de-stemming the grapes are crushed. The juice is left on the skins for only a short while in the fermentation tanks. Fermentation takes place at controlled temperatures for approximately 10 days.
A highly characterful, bright rose, with tons of fresh red berry fruit flavours. Lively and vibrant, it’s perfect as an aperitif or a great choice with prawns.
