| "Sassotondo's 2009 Ciliegiolo San Lorenzo emerges from the glass with a bevy of dark cherries in liqueur, menthol, cloves, licorice and new leather. A medium to full-bodied red, the 2009 is long on personality. Firm tannins support the opulent close. With time in the glass, the 2009 becomes more floral, perfumed and refined" (Antonio Galloni in Vinous Aug 2013.)
Winemaker's Comments: Ruby deep colour, it denotes an important extract. Cherries dominate the fragrance, along with black currants, white pepper and cloves, which are also part of the flavour. The bouquet is elegant, balanced and persistent; not a strong wine, but very fresh and easily drinkable.
