2010 Sassotondo Ciliegiolo

SKU #1087288 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2010 Ciliegiolo Maremma Toscana shows good up-front juiciness in its red fruit, grilled herbs, tobacco and licorice. Some rough edges remain, but this rustic red should drink well at the dinner table. Another few months will do this recently-bottled red a world of good. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2014  (8/ 2011)

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
