Cantine Volpetti Cesanese Lazio 2019
Perhaps you’ve never heard of it, but Cesanese is poised to become one of the hottest rediscovered red grapes in central Italy. Aromas of cranberry, pomegranate, and stewed plums fill the glass, while subtle vanilla winds through the ripe fruit on the palate. This wine drinks somewhat like a Pinot, but with earthy overtones of wild game and a touch of kale-like tannin on the finish, opening its pairing potential exponentially. It wants a seat at the table.
