Tenuta Della Ioria vineyards are located in the land of Ciociaria, south of Rome. This dry red wine lets us rediscover Cesanese di Affile, a rare red grape variety, the only native variety of Lazio DOCG. Aged in big wooden barrels, this phenomenal wine is dark ruby with hints of small red fruits, juniper, and forest musk, followed by delicate violet aromas. On the palate it is medium-bodied and fresh with a very smooth texture, and a subtle savory character. It has distinct flavors of cherry, red currant, and vanilla with an earthy undertone.
If Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc had a child it would be Cesanese!
