Chiorri Winery is a family-run vineyard, which with special care about their very own vines, produces DOC Colli Perugini and IGT dell’ Umbria white, red and rosè wines.
The family has for many generations personally dedicated themselves to the care after the vines, grape harvesting and transformation of that harvest into wine, by combining tradition, experience and technology. The objective of Chiorri is to continue making wines that create positive emotions and infinite moments of joy.
The company’s vines, planted on a gentle hill, have excellent orientation and sun exposure. The land’s inherent characteristics have been long recognised as ideal for grape growing. Care and attention to the vineyard’s 20 hectares of vines include short shoot pruning carried out by hand, biological treatments in accordance with the criteria for low environmental impact and handpicking into woven baskets.
All these and many other elements are fundamental ingredients for creating a wine of class, of the highest quality, which evokes flavours and perfumes of the Umbrian countryside.
Amongst the varietals cultivated for white wine we find Grechetto, Trebbiano and Malvasia, and those for red wine – Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Some of the main wines that Chiorri produces include Grechetto ‘Titus’ (both in stainless steel and oaked versions) and Zeffiro, Sangiovese, ‘Saliato’ (a blend of Cabernet, Sangiovese and Merlot) and a dessert wine passito Vero Amore.
The winery also produces a very limited number of the Selezione Antonio Chiorri hand-numbered bottles of best-selected Merlot and Cabernet grapes in remembrance of the Winery’s founder.
