Ciliegiolo Tenuta Aquilaia 2021

Ciliegiolo Tenuta Aquilaia 2021

Tenuta Aquilaia

A journey through time and taste through the Tuscan vineyards of Tenuta Aquilaia takes us on a discovery of Ciliegiolo 2021. A precious legacy of the ancient Etruscans who, more than 2000 years ago, began cultivating this grape in the majestic Maremma. Every sip of this red wine tells a thousand-year-old story, a symphony of marasca cherry, sour cherry and black cherry, combined with a distinct aromatic intensity and roundness. Its character is fully expressed after an eight-month ageing in stainless steel tanks, giving it a timeless elegance

The Ciliegiolo from Tenuta Aquilaia is a wine that tells centuries of history and tradition, cultivated with dedication in the heart of the Tuscan Maremma, in Scansano. This variety, already appreciated by the Etruscans over two thousand years ago, stands out for its intensity and roundness, and Tenuta Aquilaia, a master in interpreting ancient indigenous grape varieties in a modern key, offers us a Ciliegiolo of great harmony that embodies the soul and taste of this generous land. The "Auspici" line, to which this label belongs, is distinguished by the use of selected grapes, cultivated in respect of tradition and the environment, harvested by hand and left to refine both in wood and in bottle, testifying to the constant commitment to guarantee the maximum quality and authenticity of the product.

The Ciliegiolo from Tenuta Aquilaia reflects the magical encounter between territory, vineyard, and artisanal work. The grapes undergo fermentation at a controlled temperature of 26°C with maceration on the skins for 15 days. Immediately after alcoholic fermentation, malolactic fermentation takes place, which contributes to the complexity and roundness of the wine. Aging takes place in stainless steel tanks for a period of eight months, allowing the wine to gradually develop its structure and distinctive character. Care and attention during all stages of winemaking and aging give the Ciliegiolo a very rich aromatic personality, embodying the authentic essence of the territory and the winemaking tradition of the Maremma.

The bouquet of aromas that distinguishes the Ciliegiolo from Tenuta Aquilaia celebrates every nuance of the cherry, starting from the notes of marasca, passing through hints of sour cherry, and ending with amarena, all interwoven harmoniously. On the palate, this wine reveals an elegant and enveloping structure, characterized by a pleasant roundness and a satisfying aromatic persistence. The label in question is ideal for accompanying dishes of great complexity and richness, such as pappardelle with hare sauce, for example. However, it is a wine with a truly versatile vibrant personality, perfect also for simpler and everyday dishes.
