IGT Rosso Serise - Cesani
This medium bodied red wine is obtained from only Ciliegiolo grapes, a native varietal that takes its name from the Italian word for cherry, ciliegia. The use of new French barrels for the aging process give a notable tannic and spicy note to this red wine with hints of purple, that can be distinguished for its intense cherry flavor. A true Tuscan star.
