Fattoria Mantellassi in Narni for Ciliegiolo d’Italia

Producers from Liguria, Tuscany, Umbria, Lazio, Marche and Apulia gathered together in Narni for an event that had as its protagonist an autochthonous grape variety for the first time leading actor outside the local contest: the Italian ciliegiolo, last Saturday 20th and Sunday May 21st. Fattoria Mantellassi, a company of Magliano in Tuscany, brought its experience with its two versions (a red and a rosé wine) of Maestrale, which uses a typical Ciliegiolo of the area.

Two extraordinary bouquets in which cherry notes are perceived in perfumes, in soft taste and in lively color, more delicate in the rosé, where the grapes are subjected to slight pressing, and more decisive and full in the red one. A particular label was studied to emphasize the choice of the name. In it there is depicted that dry wind that blows on the Farm through the pine forests of the Maremma coast to reach the hills of the background.
