Wine Description:
Castelluccio's 'Ronco dei Ciliegi' Forlì Rosso IGT hails from the picturesque hills of Modigliana, nestled between Faenza and Forlì in Emilia-Romagna, Italy, at elevations ranging from 250 to 500 meters above sea level. Founded in the 1970s with guidance from oenologist Vittorio Fiore, the winery embodies a rich winemaking heritage. The vineyard's unique terroir and elevation contribute to the wine's distinctive character. Crafted with care, the wine undergoes refinement in 350-liter tonneaux for at least 12 months, followed by an additional 10 months in the bottle. This meticulous process results in a full-bodied Forlì Rosso with nuanced flavors, marked by the regional terroir and the influence of oak aging, offering a delightful and authentic Italian wine experience.

Intensity

Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.
