Notes:

This is a sweet alcoholic drink made from Vìsciola cherries (a type of indigenous sour cherry)  macerated in red wine.

The grapes for the base wine are harvested during the first 10 days in September and during the second ten days in October. The vìsciola cherries are picked at the end of June (yield 15 Kilograms/tree).

The blend of the wine where the cherries are macerated is Vernaccia Rossa di Pergola and Montepulciano.

Vinification and ageing

The fresh vìsciola cherries are macerated in red wine of the previous harvest. After 1-4 months at 18-20 degrees Celsius the mass is clarified per decantation and the liquid part is filtered, sugar is added and the liquid is then matured in steel before being bottled.

History

The Tonelli family have been vignerons for three generations. In 1985 Francesco, an agronomist and a sommelier, decided to leave his job as a teacher and to dedicate himself completely to viticulture and wine making: he searched for rare and old vines of Vernaccia Rossa and had them reproduced by specialised nurseries. He also helped to establish the tiny "Pergola" appellation (of a total vineyard extension of barely 45 hectares and made up of just 3 producers). Francesco is supported by his son Stefano, an oenologist, who, after having worked for a few wineries in Australia, is now helping his father with passion and dedication.
