Poggio Argentiera Principio DOC Maremma Ciliegiolo 2013
Ciliegiolo grape is like the genetic ancestor of Sangiovese. The grape is normally complement Sangiovese used for Morellino di Scansano, but Antonio Cavalla welcome the fact that this beautiful too can stand alone.
In stock (48)
Ripe red cherries and plums, very fresh and alive. Medium bodied, fleshy and supple, medium refreshing aftertaste. The Ciliegiolo grape has been cultivated for centuries in Maremma, but only recently, after DNA analysis, it has been possible to prove the relationship with the more famous Sangiovese grape. It is a key component of the Morellino di Scansano blend, but at Poggio Argentiera they believe (rightly) that it is an excellent wine in its own right can be. Another beautiful expression of this is the Vallerane Alta from the same winery.
