2016 Cesanese Tenuta della Ioria DOCG
2016 Cesanese DOCG Tenuta della Ioria

Our Price: $39.99

Quantity in Stock:4


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 in color 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.

Pair with red pasta such as Amatriciana or roasted meat.

Just got back from our trip to Rome and tried  Cesanese for the first time, it was fantastic! I had to find a bottle back home and this is one of the best I've had! Incredible wine!!
