Val delle Rose 2017 Ciliegiolo Maremma Toscana 'Il Ciliegiolo'
Ciliegiolo is a variety that is normally found in Tuscan blends where it is a partner to Sangiovese and others. However, there are some producers on the Tuscan coast who make wines solely from this vine. This version from Val delle Rose near Grosseto is a delicious, black fruit scented wine which is rich and dark with scents of the forest, but dominated but with intense black cherry. Vale delle Rose only makes 6,000 bottles of this so could be classed as a bit of a rarity. We love it for its authentic Tuscan character, but also its quirkiness.
Val delle Rose is owned by Famiglia Cecchi one of Tuscany's most famous family owned wineries. Cecchi was founded in 1893 but has owned this estate since 1966. Cecchi owns a number of other wineries in Tuscany and Umbria including Villa Cerna, Monte Guelfo and Castello Montaùto
The vineyard is located in the hamlet of Poggio La Mozza a few KMs south-east of Grosseto in the Maremma region of Tuscany, just 20KM from the coast. Here the climate is much more Mediterranean than the central part of Tuscany where Chianti and Brunello are grown. The wines here are softer and plusher, quite often having an international influence to the wines, but not here at Val delle Rose: these are properly authentic Tuscan wines.
Val delle Rose has an approach of quality before quantity always working with low yields, and exploiting the expertise handed down through generations since 1893
