Traditional Wine and Wild Sour Cherry Dessert Wine

Svisciola

An ancient Marche Region tradition of aromatised wines began in ancient castles and medieval times, and was passed down to local winemakers, evolving through time until the present day.

Found exclusively in the Castelli di Jesi area or in Cantiano and Pergola (villages near Pesaro) this special drink is produced according to many different secret recipes that vary from winery to winery.

Svìsciola is created, in compliance with the purest tradition, from our red Montepulciano and Sangiovese wine, wich is added to Visciola (an ancient variety of "Prunus Cerasus" sour cherry known for its dark red colour and slightly sour taste).

Hand-harvested in June or July, Visciolas and sugar lay in glass demijohns all summer.
In October they go through the re-fermentation process together with our red grape juice must.

The end result of such a long process is a precious and unique drink.
Intense ruby red, with sour cherry, banana and cocoa sensations, it is dry on the palate with an almond aftertaste.
Its taste is instead delicate and intense at the same time with a slightly but remarkable bitter sensation.

To be served with typical regional desserts (such as ciambellone, ciambelle di mosto, crostate, pastries and cakes) or with chocolate or medium-seasoned cheeses.
It can also be considered a meditation wine or be tasted in good company.
