This is a selection from our private cellar thanks to dear friends Carla and Edoardo who have created truly unique wines.

The wines of Sassotondo want to be an expression of this powerful and mysterious territory: the native vines and an environment that is in some respects extreme – with the tuff that emerges everywhere – produce fine and elegant wines, naturally concentrated, savory and spicy.

Ciliegiolo Maremma Toscana Doc

Grape: Cherry 100%

Alc. 14%

The best selection of cherry grapes from a more than 50-year-old vineyard managed since 1994 with organic farming methods. The vineyard is located in front of the village of Pitigliano, in Maremma; in its 3.5 hectares there are about 8500 old plants trained on the guyot system with a density of 2500 plants ha; a part has been replanted with a density of 4800 plants per hectare, an attempt is also being made to fill the gaps with young plants made in the nursery with the cherry tree from that same vineyard. The plant is exposed to SE/NW, on medium-textured subacid tufa soil.

The harvest and selection of the grapes are manual, the fermentation takes place without the addition of yeasts, and the maceration lasts from 15 to 20 days. The wine ages for 18/30 months in 10 hl Slavonian oak barrels. San Lorenzo is put on the market after 12 months of aging in the bottle.

Deep ruby ​​color, the consistency already denotes an important extract. On the nose the cherry dominates, but associated with black currants, spicy pepper, clove which then also reappear on the palate. In the mouth it is elegant, balanced and of good persistence; not a muscular wine, but one of great freshness and drinkability
