A partner at the Castorani winery, which dates back to 1793, the former pilot has received critical attention on labels such as Podere, which obtained the highest rating (Tre Bicchieri) from the Gambero Rosso guide (Credit: Disclosure)

Long-time on the tracks, former Italian driver Jarno Trulli competed in 256 Formula 1 GPs between 1997 and 2011, racing for the Minardi, Toyota, Renault and Lotus teams, among others. He rose to the podium 11 times in the category, in which he won only one event, in Monaco. His only world title in motorsport was in karting. Off the slopes, however, he has won more “grand prizes” as a winemaker. He is a partner at Castorani winery, which has been producing in the Abruzzo region since 1793 and today is dedicated to native grape varieties from organic farming and vinification using cement eggs.

In Brazil, some of these wines can be found at Trattoria Mobile, in São Paulo, which specializes in Italians. For those looking for a Montepulciano D’Abruzzo with a great price-performance ratio, the tip is the Volparo, sold in the R$80 range.

Podere Castorani DOC Riserva is a natural champion. The grapes are from vineyards with an average age of 30 years, grown without chemical fertilizers or pesticides. The must remains in contact with the grape varieties for 12 months in 500 liter French oak barrels before moving to cement vats, where it ages for another six months. Bottle refinement lasts another 15 months. The result is a wine with silky tannins and great volume in the mouth. It is not by chance that it has earned the highest rating from the Gambero Rosso (Tre Bicchieri) guide for 11 years. Worth the R$ 450 ordered for each bottle at Trattoria Mobile.
