Description

The ciliegiolo grapes are harvested from their vineyards in Pitigliano, planted in the 1960s, and Sovana, dating back to 1995.
The grapes are hand-picked in boxes and selected on the vine. Fermentation takes place without the use of yeasts and lasts about 20 days, a period that also includes maceration.
The wine is then matured for a few months in steel.

Friendly tip: let it decant for at least an hour before tasting.

Tasting Notes

Ruby red in colour, it enchants the eye with its lively and brilliant notes. On the nose, it is intense and persistent, with notes of mulberry and red fruits such as plum and blackberry, and a spicy nuance of white pepper.
The very name of the grape variety expresses its characteristic hint of cherry.
It is a red wine that lends itself to quiet drinking: the tannins are not intrusive and its body tends to be pleasantly soft without losing structure.

Food Pairings

Excellent throughout a meal but releases its intensity when paired with meat dishes such as ravioli served with meat sauce. Ideal to accompany important and full-bodied cold cuts.

Why Do We Love It?

Ciliegiolo is the drinking pleasure of the Tuscan red. But Sassotondo's chalice has an extra value not found in other examples of the same kind. Their vineyards grow among the tufa, the typical soil of the area, and are cultivated according to the canons of organic agriculture. This allows all the strength and power of this territory to be unleashed without limit.
