On Sunday, 28th August, the Artenova wine jars aired in two well known documentary programmes about agriculture travel and food: “Linea Verde” and “Sereno Variabile” both on Italian National TV. The cameras of RAI 2 visited Francesco Cirelli in his home town of Atri in Abruzzo where, in the Cirelli cellars, wine is matured in 16 jars of Impruneta clay. During the programme Cirelli describes his company and how he makes his wine using traditions going back to Roman times – in amphora.

Then “Sereno Variabile” on RAI 1, visited the splendid company from the island of Elba: Agricola Arrighi, where since 2011 Antonio Arrighi produces wine in Artenova wine-jars. The Elba experience has recently been enriched by the archaeological excavation of the Roman Villa of San Giovanni, in the bay of Portoferraio, where ancient amphorae, testimonials of wine making in the Roman world, have come to light
