Casale del Giglio Cesanese 2013

Lazio, ItalyWhen was the last time you had a wine from cesanese? Yup - me neither. Cesanese commune is one of the countless indigenous grapes of Italy, with low-yielding and spindly bunches, grown primarily in the Lazio region, and rarely seen outside of it. Cinnamon on the nose reappears to texture the palate, with fuzzy, dusty and drying bitter tannins on the finish. Soft red plums and cherries core the middle, and finish with some warming red pepper. This is a lighter, rustic red, ideally poured with braised meats.Tasted: 02 March 2017Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 23.99 BCLS AB 17.00 fine wine shops Producer: Casale del GiglioDistributors: World Wine Synergy Inc.
