Famiglia Cielo 1908 Appassionatamente
Famiglia Cielo 1908 Appassionatamente is the premium wine from this long established family winery.
It's full and smooth with plenty of red fruit and a little spice.
According to their website, Famiglia Cielo was founded in 1908 when great grandpa Giovanni fell in love with a small estate overlooking the Romeo and Juliet castles in the Berici Hills in Veneto.
They produce several ranges of wines including Prosecco. This is their premium wine of which they are very proud.
Text from their website states:
"Passionately with our vine growers we have created a great venetian red, masterful blend of our territory and winemaking expertise
Colour: Intense red with garnet
Bouquet: full and fragrant with typical hints of ripe red fruit and light spicy notes
Taste: full, large and round, with ripe red fruit notes
It's a blend of Merlot, Corvina and Sangiovese, presented in a big heavy weight bottle. It's a lovely wine and wouldn't look out of place at £20 so for £11.99 it is a bargain!
