2017 Ciliegiolo, Tracy Hills

New release! For starters, Ciliegiolo is pronounced “chili-jolo.” We treated these grapes using carbonic maceration, which allows an intracellular fermentation and promotes fruit and perfume aromas without extracting tannin from the grape skins. This delicate, floral and fruity wine demanded to be represented as young, wild and free. Thus, we bottled it after only one month of aging to capture its exuberance. Aromas of black cherry, oolong tea, and petrichor give way to flavors of strawberry rhubarb and blackberry. Enjoy this wine at room temperature or slightly chilled.
$35.00 per Bottle
