Ramici Ciliegiolo di Narni Umbria IGP - 2016
Ramici is a red wine based on Ciliegiolo from the oldest vines of the winery and represents the flagship wine Bussoletti. It has a distinct personality and a very elegant without lacking complexity. The name Ciliegiolo (Italian for ‘small cherry’) comes from the cherry aroma of the berries. According to tradition, Ciliegiolo was introduced from Spain around 1870 by pilgrims coming back from Santiago de Compostela, which would justify its synonym Ciliegiolo di, Spagna. The wines have an intense red color, aromas of cherries, strawberries, and spices; they may be juicy or fuller in body, they occasionally lack acidity, which is why they complement Sangiovese so well.
Leonardo Bussoletti is a winemaker from the city of Narni. Narni is a historical city located in the Umbria region, right in the heart of Italy. Bussoletti is focused on bringing on the winemaking tradition of the area. In his portfolio, we find wines made with varieties such as Grechetto and Trebbiano Spoletino for the whites, while the reds only from the Ciliegiolo, another autochthonous grape of the region. Leonardo is the pioneer in producing Ciliegiolo wines, traditionally also used in the production of Chianti, but Bussoletti having recognized the potential of this grape he decided instead to produce mono-varietal wines. Thanks to him, Ciliegiolo is now more known around the world.
