ciliegioloCiliegiolo is a variety of red wine grape from Italy, named after the Italian for ‘cherry’. It is a minor component of traditional blends such as Chianti, but interest has revived in recent years. In Umbria it is made into a light quaffing wine, while in Tuscany it is made into a bigger, more structured style.

Ciliegiolo was planted by Cougar Vineyard & Winery in 2012.
