Established in 1908 by a collective of wine producers in Veneto, Cielo was founded with the vision of combining resources in production, sales, and expertise. With access to a plentiful supply of grapes, Cielo consistently maintains high quality while offering wines at affordable prices.

Hailing from the countryside of Chianti, this “Grand Tuscan” masterpiece is meticulously crafted from a blend of Sangiovese and Merlot grapes. It was recently awarded 90 points by the renowned James Suckling.

The Gran Passaia Rosso Toscano from Cielo e Terra is a warm, fragrant, and delicate red wine cuvée from Tuscany. Made from Sangiovese and Merlot grapes, this wine shines in a rich dark red with violet highlights. The nose offers an aromatic bouquet of ripe cherries, juicy plums, and berries (redcurrants, blackberries, and raspberries). On the palate, it impresses with a harmonious body and a delicate tannin structure, reflecting the aromas on the nose and leading to a pleasant, balanced finish.

Joe’s Judgements

Toscana wines are providing superb value at the moment, with winemakers in Tuscany trying new combos of grape varieties and moving away from the more traditional methods. While the ‘Super Tuscans’ dominate the premium wine market, the Toscana IGT designation is a wonderful area to explore on a budget.

The Gran Passaia Toscana IGT Sangiovese/Merlot 2020 from Ciela de Terra is a wonderful, warm and approachable wine, showing ripe red fruit with a hint of spice. Fragrant on the nose, showing beautiful aromatic touches of cherry and raspberry. A touch of vanilla from oak and pepper spice make themselves heard as well. Soft tannin structure and good acidity makes this wine perfect for all Italian dishes of the the tomato variety, grilled meat and veg or just as a nice mid-week quaff. The Merlot works beautifully with the sangiovese, rounding off the edges and making it so very easy to drink.
