2015 Piana dei Castelli Rosso
Natural – biodynamic
100% Cesanese grapes harvested when they are overripe from vineyards located in south Velletri and north Aprilia (south of Rome). The must is cryomacerated for 12 hours. Fermentation and ageing for 24 months on skins in cement tanks and 12 months in the bottle. Unfiltered and unclarified.
Deep ruby red with purple and garnet hues. Aromas of plum, cocoa, dark chocolate as well as balsamic notes. On the palate, prevalence of forest fruits in particular, redcurrant, blackberry and gooseberry with a hint of wild strawberry. Balanced acidity and long persistence. Unexpected, subtle, pleasant final sweet note of apricot jam.
Perfect with pasta with ragout, meat and aged cheeses.
