Historical notes

The return from the pilgrimage

Ciliegiolo is a wine of ancient race, even if the most long-lived testimonies were handed down only orally. There is a hypothesis, not confirmed, for which the Ciliegiolo may have been brought to Tuscany around 1870 by pilgrims returning from the Way of St James. It takes its name from the typical Cherry scent. Ciliegiolo, which has been hypothesized to be the same lineage of Aglianico, is directly connected to the Sangiovese family, even if there is no certain information on which one of the two was born before. It is normally is mixed with other wines, such as Chianti, but also in purity, especially in the Maremma area, with excellent quality productions.
