Chiusa Grande Vinosophia Passerina


Franco D’Eusanio worked as a consultant for other wineries prior to founding Chiusa Grande in 1994. A graduate in agricultural sciences, he quickly established a reputation as a philosopher-winemaker, seeking out a sense of equilibrium with nature. In his words: “We have to understand how farming that relies on intensive use of chemicals will lead us down a blind alley. I believe it’s possible to make a good wine without bowing down to the god of profit, and with an eye to the health of the consumer’s mind and body”. His 60 hectares of vineyards are spread across 5 different plots in Nocciano, Cugnoli, Civitaquana, Loreto Aprutino, and Casacanditella. The back-label of his wines are peppered with organic designation stamps like a wine version of Nascar.

This is a snappy little number. In the glass it’s yellow straw in colour, with lively aromas of nerol and tropical fruit. There’s some debate among wine writers about whether Passerina is aromatic, but to our nose this wine has aromatics in spades. Crisp and bright, this is your new porch-pounder.
