Rascioni e Cecconello

Our wines

The flagship of the Rascioni and Cecconello winery.

Since 1988 the Rascioni and Cecconello company has been the first producer of pure and organic Ciliegiolo.

We have always believed in the potential of this grape variety and have worked hard to turn it into a wine of excellence. With the creation of Poggio Ciliegio, the dream of taking Rascioni e Cecconello’s wines beyond national borders was realized.

In fact, after the launch of Poggio Ciliegio in 1988, the Rascioni e Cecconello winery’s ciliegiolo quickly conquered the wine world, earning prestigious awards from renowned wine guides such as Robert Parker, the Wine Spectator and the L’Espresso Guide. The celebrated Luigi Veronelli praised Poggio Ciliegio, awarding it the “Sole Veronelli” and visiting the winery and its founders, Paolino Cecconello and Vinicia Rascioni, several times.

Also confirming the excellent quality of our cherry vine and wine is the University of Pisa, which since the 1990s began research under the leadership of Professor Scalabrelli. Initially, the focus was on studying our scions, work that helped define the quality and authenticity of our wines. Today, we continue to conduct extensive research and field experiments to deepen our knowledge and improve the production of this extraordinary native grape variety.
