Casale Del Giglio Cesanese 2019
|Availability:||In stock (7)|
This variety hails from the Latium Province of Frosinone, once inhabited by the ancient Volsci tribe who conquered the town of Satricum in 488 BC and ruled supreme until the Romans established a colony there in 385 BC. Prime areas for the cultivation of Cesanese are around the hill towns of Affile and Piglio.
Deep ruby red. Intense aromas of marasca cherry, typical of late varieties, followed by spicy notes of white pepper, black pepper and violet.
The mouthfeel is soft, with persistent tannins and pronounced acidity, essential criteria for long aging.
