Ciliegiolo is a red grape variety of central and north-western Italy, which is undergoing a renaissance in Liguria and Tuscany, where it is mostly used in fabulous blends with Sangiovese.

The grape’s name comes from ciliegia”, the Italian word for cherry, a fruit which Ciliegiolo resembles both in color and aroma. Made from 100% Ciliegiolo, this wine has a gorgeous light color. At first, the bouquet reminds you of an old cellar, followed by explosive freshness and notes of black cherry. Consistent and dry on the palate, it has flavors of ripe fruits and very soft tannins, with a long finish. This fresh and appealing wine is full of character, and is a perfect pairing for lighter pasta dishes, cold cuts, cheeses, and seafood.

5 of 5 excellent tannins and a lovely fruity finish. August 12, 2018
Reviewer: Matteo F from San Jose, CA United States  
The bouquet is clean with floral scents of sweet violet and fruity notes of cherry, all seasoned with a touch of white spice. The mouthfeel is elegant and silky with a light but flavorful body, a nice progression, excellent tannins and a lovely fruity finish.
