LaSelva sits within the Maremma D.O.C. in the southern portion of Tuscany in a small town called Magliano, producing their phenomenal wines in an underground cellar built in 2000. Having started farming and vinifying in 1980 as a certified organic estate, LaSelva may arguably be the very first organic property with a certificate in all of Italy. Since the beginning, their extreme commitment to producing clean wines of integrity by keeping balance between the grapes and the environment they are raised in, is inspiring and authentic. There are four vineyards that the estate owns and farms, and their wide bottlings of various native and international varietals reaches to an annual production of about 180,000 bottles. Natural fermentation for their red wines, as well as neutral oak, and extremely low sulfur additions (if any), are a few practices LaSelva employs in order to give the greatest expression that they can in their fruit. This winery offers exceptional value in all that they do, and the personality within each wine is evident and extraordinary. Ciliegiolo is a single varietal wine from a grape that is almost always blended into the other wines of Tuscany, as it has a beautiful uplifting fruit that accompanies other grapes well. Ciliegiolo means ‘cherry,’ and follows this translation extremely well as it yields different tones of this wonderful fruit. The grapes came into the cellar from the estates eponymously named 70-year-old vineyard, and went through a natural fermentation in French oak barrels, where the wine then rested for 8 months, saw a light filtration, and laid in bottle for another 6 months before its release. Very few single varietal Ciliegiolos have ever been made, yet the incredible texture and depth of flavor from this wine raises the question of why it is not done more often. Crisp yet deep notes of ripe red fruits, including cherry obviously, shoot forth from the nose and also layer onto the pallet next to a slight spicy character, as well a chewy and complex tannic structure.
