The Chiorri Winemakers Company is a vineyard under family management, which with special care from their very own vines, produces D.O.C. Colli Perugini and IGT dell'Umbria white, red and rosè wines.
The family, together with the help of experienced workers, have for many generations personally dedicated themselves to the care of the vines, grape harvesting and the transformation of that harvest into bottled wine, by combining tradition, experience and technology. The hope of the Azienda Vitivinicola Chiorri is to continue to offer a wine capable of enhancing any occasion adding positive emotions and infinite moments of joy.
The company's vines, planted across a gentle hill, have excellent orientation and sun exposure. The land's inherent characteristics have been long recognised, for centuries in fact, as ideal for grape growing, being recognised and protected by the Denominazione d'origine controllata (controlled nomination of origin) title of Colli Peruginiand the Indicazione Geografica tipica dell'Umbria. The care and attention for their vineyard's some 20 hectares of vines, includes short shoot pruning which is carried out by hand, biological treatments which are ecologically compatable in accordance with the criteria for low environmental impact and picking carried out by hand into woven baskets. All these and many other attentions to detail are the fundamental ingredients in obtaining a wine of class, of the highest quality, which evokes the flavours and perfumes of the Umbrian countryside.
