In the past sour cherry wine was produced to make robust and tannic wine more enjoyable. According to his biographer and trusted librarian Vespasiano da Bisticci, the duke Federico da Montefeltro “hardly drink wine if it was not cherry or pomegranate wine” (“quasi non beveva vino se non de ciriege o de granate”). Lately, it was considered a wine for women, to present to the fair sex for its fragrances, its smoothness and roundness. Currently, it is considered as a meditation wine, to taste and savour in company, rediscovering ancient flavours.
Deep ruby red with amaranth hues.
Intense and rich, with sensual notes of purple flowers and scents of ripe, pulpy red fruits jam.
Elegant and soft, highly persistent and fresh. It is captivating, full-bodied, tangy, fresh and well-orchestrated. Clear floral taste, round and well defined savour of sweet cherry, blackberry and blueberry jam. An intriguing wine, inviting to sip more and more.

Location Ascoli Piceno
Vinification The basic ingredient for this cherry wine is an ancient variety of wild cherry, namely “visciola” (Prunus cerasus), which has a deep red colour and sour taste. Based on the traditional recipe, sour cherries are harvested when ripe, during the first weeks of July, and left to soak in sugar, partly whole and partly smashed; thus fermentation starts and slowly brings the juice to a delicate and aromatic syrup. This product is then decanted for a few days and finally filtered. The result is a syrup with a high sugar concentration, which is added to the wine starting a second fermentation. So wine and syrup are blended together.
Alcohol 13.50% by volume
Matching Perfect with petit fours with bitter chocolate. It can also be drunk as a wine for meditation or as a digestive at the end of a meal.
