2010 Casale della Ioria "Campo Novo" Cesanese del Piglio

SKU #1096188

Cesanese is the local red grape of Lazio, the region that encompasses Rome. It has fallen out of favor in recent years, replaced by international varietals such as Cab and Merlot, and much of it ends up as local sfuzo wine to be consumed in ungodly quantities in il pallazzi of the Eternal City. But the Campo Novo is very much an exception, showing what the grape can achieve in the right hands. The 2010 is bursting with bright red and blue fruit, with a floral component, spice and earth accents. With its fleshy acidity taming its tannins, this wine would be killer with a Roman standard like Spaghetti Carbonara or Cacio e Pepe.

The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages.
