      Tasting notes :

      Lunae's Ciliegiolo is brilliant ruby red in color, resembling the fruit it takes its name from (Ciliegia is Italian for 'cherry'). Fragrant notes of red fruits, predominantly cherry, spices and Mediterranean bush. Soft and fruity on the palate, elegant and smooth, fresh with naturally low-acidity. Very versatile, Ciliegiolo is a perfect match with cold cuts, pizza, poultry, hearty salads or, when slightly chilled (57-59F), it will accompany seafood dishes beautifully.
