Priore Ju Quarto Cesanese del Piglio 2015

Big cherries and slight alcohol on the nose that comes off as flowers on the palate, then, with air, the nose opens to figs, plums, blackberries, brown sugar. The cherries are super sweet, and there's light spice, fennel, nutmeg, and light leather on the palate, and a cherry skin or overripe fruit, barnyardy-savory bitter edge on the finish that I am very happy about. Some mouth-coating tannins on here, which soften, but certainly do not go away, the tannins give it structure the way that minerals do elsewhere. I don't think they take from this nimble wine, and they give it a character of its own: rustic and highly fragrant. — 3 years ago

40% Cesanese 60% Syrah blend from Lazio. 2016 is a bit young. Full bodied. Filled with sour cherry and currant. Having across the street from the Roman Forum with eggplant parm Roman style... quite lovely as the wine augments the flavors in the nice nightshade dish — 3 years ago
