Ciliegiolo Motta Maremma Toscana DOC 2019 Organic

£13.51

The winemaker says: “Pure Ciliegiolo was the first wine my parents produced when they started making wine here in the Maremma in 1986. It came from the oldest vines they found already planted. Now, after 34 harvests, I can say that Ciliegiolo gives its best with simplicity, when it is fresh, young and fruity but also elegant and balanced”.
