A tight, powerful red with lots of black-cherry, vanilla, dark-chocolate and walnut-shell aromas and flavors. It's full, tight and tannic with loads of fruit, which is reserved and tight under the tannins. Needs three to four years to open. Try after 2024.
Decanter Magazine Review
From a plot of over 40-year-old vines surrounding an old cherry tree that sits in the middle of La Magia's 15-hectare vineyard, Ciliegio opens with grilled, toasty oak aromas. With time, violet, ripe black currants and mint emerge. Full-figured though not weighty, black cherry fruit is countered by vibrant acidity and chewy, grainy tannins, then mocha and balsamic herbs ring out on the finish. Give the wood time to integrate because there is much, much more going on. Drinking Window: 2023-2035.
Wine Tasting Notes
Only a very limited quantity of numbered bottles of this precious La Magia Brunello Di Montalcino Il Ciliegio is released onto the market. With its freshness and complexity, this wine has pronounced mineral undertones. A statement of concentration and elegance that only the Sangiovese grape can deliver, when grown in its ideal environment.
