Taste the quintessence of this ancient, single-varietal unblended wine.
DANTE Ciliegiolo is a local, single-varietal wine of centuries-old tradition. This soft and noble wine, with refined notes of cherry, has its roots in the lush vineyards of central Italy. Present since ancient times, according to recent studies, it could even be the forefather of the most famous Sangiovese, with whom it has a deep connection.

Today, DANTE offers Ciliegiolo, its unblended, single-varietal wine, in the fullness of its original taste.
