Characteristics of the wine obtained from this grape variety In fact, Ciliegiolo provides these cuts of alcoholism, sweet cherry flavors and softness, but also a sufficient attitude to aging. When used in purity, the wine has a beautiful ruby ​​color with brilliant violet veins of good alcohol content, with complex and fine scents and structured palate and full body. Generally, they are wines to drink young because of the low acidity, which makes them soft, but it also grows old when producers require their wines to be even more intense and complex, with a good bill, where the fruity notes of cherry grow to appear with Scents of undergrowth, touches of plums and marasch and still berries in jams.
Notes Grapes are also welcome for direct consumption, due to early ripening; In the past, in the Pisan hillsides area, exporters sent to Germany "Chasselas dorè" boxes (Bordeaux "trampled" with clusters of Ciliegiolo called "masks").
