Ciliegiolo Rosso Toscana IGT

2019

Ciliegiolo, meaning “cherry-like”, is usually reserved as a blending grape. Bottled on its own, it shows remarkably bright red fruits and fresh acidity.  There have been conflicting studies, but Ciliegiolo is either a parent or offspring of Sangiovese. 

San Ferdinando’s version comes from 1.7 hectares of vineyards at 330m, facing south-southeast.  The vines were planted in 2006 on light sandy topsoil with compact grey clay about 20cm beneath.
