Monastero Suore Cistercensi

Benedic Red Blend 2019

Unpretentious, easy-drinking blend of Sangiovese and Ciliegiolo by Paolo Bea - benchmark producer of natural wines - and the nuns at the Cistercian monastery in Vitorchiano in Lazio (coenobium is the Latin for monastery). Fermented with wild yeasts. Pale, slightly cloudy cherry color. Red fruit (cherry, strawberry jam) aromas and flavors. Earthy and floral notes and a hint of tobacco and herbs. Fruit-forward, medium bodied, great acidity. Nice rusticity. Very pleasant — 6 days ago

Ciliegiolo 2019

Delicious light red, chilled. Almost a Rosé… bright cherry flavors, high acid, yummy. Reminds me of Grignolino, but more accessible. — 5 months ago

Bussoletti Leonardo

Brecciaro Ciliegiolo di Narni 2016

Incense, potpourri, rosemary- but subtle and floral. It smells the apartment of a stoner girl. Italian high-toned mineral. Green Strawberry. Clean light tannins. — 2 months ago

Podere Orto

Trivium Amai Sangiovese Blend 2018

Great easy and approachable bottle. Sweet, but not overly so. Served with a very slight chill, but could have used a little more cooling. Light bodied. 70% Sangiovese, 30% Procanico. — 3 months ago

Ironista toscana rosso Ciliegiolo 2019

Enjoyed it and there was hella sediment which was a first in such a young wine (2019) but I guess that’s the barnyard charm of natural wine. — 5 months ago

Il Rosato di Casa Mattioli 2019

Tenuta Santa Lucia

Toscana Ciliegiolo 2015

My first single varietal Ciliegiolo! (Normally a Tuscan blending grape). Dark plum and black cherry fruit aromas and flavors. Hints of smoked meat, grilled herbs, fresh tilled soil and iodine. Smooth tannins and easy to drink. Bold, Dense and Interesting. Revisited in September 2021. Fresh and fruit forward. Great starter wine. — 3 months ago

I Vini Di Giovanni

Ciliegiozzo Umbria Ciliegiolo Rosato

Pink but dry not sweet. Bitter as pith. The best part perhaps how surprising it tastes compared to how it appears. — 4 months ago

Antonio Camillo

Maremma Toscana IGT Ciliegiolo 2019

2021/3-4. A bit Beaujolais-like but with some dark cherry that perhaps evokes its Tuscan origins — 5 months ago
