IGT Red Tuscany

Ciliegiolo 100%

Is an intriguing wine that melds together the natural brightness and floral-infused red berry character of Ciliegiolo with the richness and power that are so typical of the wines of the territory
A pretty red with blackberry and blueberry character . Medium to full body, round and creamy tannins and a delicious finish.
