Rubino Cesanese del Piglio 2019

First bottling for this Cesanese del Piglio producer, and it’s very interesting. Still young and a bit harsh on the tannins, but the style is lean and elegant. Not a typical Cesanese. Notes of Dolcetto-like dark fruit, crossed with floral Nebbiolo elements. — 8 months ago

San Giovanni Piglio Superiore Cesanese d’affile 2016

Ever heard of Cesanese? Me neither. An ancient grape grown around Rome and drunk by the ancient Romans, it virtually went extinct. But thank God it it did not. Cesanese is the only DOCG wine from the Lazio hill region. This wine being an unfiltered Biodynamic deal has a lot of funk on it if you drink it without food. But accompanied by a good cheese or savory meat and it is fresh, juicy, grapey magic. — 5 months ago

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. — 2 years ago
