DESCRIPTION:

Piglio is 100% Cesanese grape, an indigenous grape from the Frosinone area not far from Rome. This grape is vinficated in steel and then refined in French oak tonneaux (700liter wooden container) to allow the wine to breathe and avoiding the wood taking over the taste. A beautiful medium ruby red in colour, nose of fresh red berries, red plums and pomegranate. Elegant palate, starting with fresh fruit and evolving with delicate spices and an almond finish.
