Cesanese del Piglio
Top 6% wine in the world
Blend: 100% Cesanese
From: Italy, Cesanese del Piglio DOCG
By: Costa Graia
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.
Costa Graia is run by three winemaking friends each with a great respect for nature. The traditions of Cesanese in this area began in the medieval times and is well suited to areas with altitudes ranging from 200mt to 980mt above sea level. The estate proudly owns some extremely good single vineyards, each with very different characteristics. From sandy soil to volcanic soil, they are able to grow different grapes on different slopes and altitude. The motto is “nature should not be fought, but accomplished”.
