Ciliegiolo DOC Sassotondo, Tasting notes:

Scents of Red Fruits, mostly Cherry Warm and Soft, with a good Structure. Amazing pair with Tuscan salami and white meats, also with fish soups. Cilegiolo from the vineyards of Sovana and Pitigliano. The oldest vineyards, in Pitigliano, were planted in the 1960s while in Sovana the ciliegiolo comes from vineyards that derive from a massal selection of the oldest vines and were planted between 1995 and 2003. The grapes are harvested and selected by hand. Fermentation takes place without the addition of yeasts and lasts, including maceration, between 15 and 20 days. It matures for a few months in steel.

Ciliegiolo from Maremma

Sassotondo

The producer, Sassotondo, works with passion in the lands that unite Pitigliano and Sovana. A powerful and mysterious territory: the autochthonous vines and an environment which is in some ways extreme – with tuff rising everywhere – produce fine and elegant wines, naturally concentrated, sapid and spicy. Sassotondo’s wines endeavor to communicate the power and mistery of the land they come from: the local varieties of vines combined with an unique environment, with the tufo stone that appears everywhere, make wines that are fine and elegant, naturally concentrated, sapid and spicy.

How do we ship the products?

Our priority is to pack and ship products as safely as possible. The bottles of wine and oil are shipped with special cardboard protections, there will be no breakages.

Do you use refrigerated transport?

No, all the products we sell are seasoned and under vaacum. They do not need to be transported at controlled temperature in a refrigerated truck. However, in the summer, for additional safety we can use dry ice and other protections to ensure an even more careful service.
