TASTE
Delightfully vivid, juicy wine with a pronounced red cherry flavour that reflects its name (Ciliegiolo means ‘small cherry’). Medium-bodied and quite silky on the palate, it delivers the trademark Italian twist on the finish, making it particularly moreish.

PRODUCER
Bolgheri may have claimed the Cabernet crown in this maritime part of southern Tuscany known as Maremma, but Scansano remains its most promising zone for Sangiovese. Azienda Il Grillesino was founded in 1999, specialising in the local clone of Sangiovese, known as Morellino, as well as the local variety Ciliegiolo. The estate now consists of three vineyards: eleven hectares in Grancia, fifteen hectares in Magliano, and a new seventeen-hectare development next to the winery.

VINEYARD
The Ciliegiolo is grown on stony clay-limestone soil at 200 metres above sea level, on slopes with a south-west exposition.

WINERY
The wine underwent a fifteen-day temperature-controlled fermentation with gentle extraction, and was bottle unoaked and unfiltered in the spring following the vintage.
