Lupi Reali (“Royal Wolves” in Italian) is the quintessential juicy Italian red, with that perfect mingling of acid, spice, and tannin. Notes of black and red berries, and dried flowers. Pair this with everything! 12.5% alcohol.

The grapes are organically grown. They are able to reach the full maturation typical of warm regions, yet maintaining a fresh aromatic profile. They are harvested by hand, destemmed and pressed. The must is transferred directly into small stainless steel tanks. Fermentation occurs for about 10-15 days at controlled temperature, followed by 4 months of aging.

About the Producer

Passione Natura was started in 2007 by Eric Narioo and a group of independent winegrowers in Abruzzo. They teamed up to manage abandoned vineyards, converting them all to Organic and Biodynamic certification.

They are concentrated in the highest peaks of southern Italy, in the commune of Popoli, a remote mountain town surrounded by glaciers within a national park.

Passione Natura employs traditional winemaking methods to create honest, regional wines. Intervention is minimal, pesticides are never used, and sulphur only sparingly at bottling. The aim of the project is to shine a light on the fantastic wines of Abruzzo, offering quality, terroir-driven natural wines at affordable prices.
