“The fireplace, your family and the silence of the evening. A toast to the satisfaction you can see in your dog’s eyes…because it’s laying on your couch!”



Cesanese del Piglio Riserva DOCG 

Bottled in May 2019
Grape variety: Cesanese di Affile 100%
Careful selection of old vines, hand picked, a 20 days long maceration on skins with frequents pumping over. Malolactic fermentation in iron steel vats. Aging occurs in traditional large barrels of Slavonian oak for 24 months and it the follows a bottle refinement for at least 6 months.
The colour is an intense ruby red, at the nose you can immediately smell the fruty notes of black currants and undergrowth. The taste is rich and very concentrated with spicy and fruity notes, tannnins are smooth and silky. The aftertaste is long and persistent, it is a wine that can last long in time.
