Ciliegiolo is a red grape variety of central and north-western Italy, something of an obscurity in recent decades but now undergoing a renaissance in Liguria and its spiritual home, Tuscany. It is now used increasingly in the red wines of several western Italian DOCs and number of varietal IGT wines made from Ciliegiolo has increased considerably since 2000. The grapes name comes from an Italian word for cherry, a fruit which Ciliegiolo wines resemble both in color and aroma. It is this character which has prompted the vines renaissance, as the variety brings a certain freshness and lively character to otherwise heavy wines. In a world which increasingly demands early-drinking wines but which are nonetheless full of character, Ciliegiolo grapes have provided an excellent addition to wines that would otherwise need cellaring.
Made from 100% Ciliegiolo, this wine is a gorgeous dark cherry color. Explosive freshness on the nose, with notes of black cherry and marasca. Consistent on the palate, with masses of cherry and ripe fruits, fresh and appealing.
Ideal for lighter Pasta Dishes, Cold Cuts, Cheeses as well as Fish and Seafood.
