The Casale del Giglio vineyard is redefining the Italian viticulture by producing exceptional wines in previously undiscovered areas. Cesanese comes from a low yielding red variety, native to the Lazio region which is proving to be strict competition for many “super Tuscans”. Slight hint of spice, and ripe red berries, with an incredibly smooth, long finish.
Excellent with Shrimp, Haddock and Swordfish
- “Among the rare red wines of Lazio, Cesanese del Piglio is the most interesting,” says Rome-based wine historian Andrea Gabbrielli. “Today, the market wants wines with identity and personality and even though Cesanese is an antique variety, it represents an exciting new trend.” – CLAUDIA RICCI (Wine Enthusiast Mag)
