Wines : Cesanese del Piglio DOC

For decades, the only Denominazione di Origine Controllata wine of the province of Frosinone was the Cesanese del Piglio, produced in the communal territories of Piglio, Serrone, Acuto, Anagni and Paliano. It is one of the triad of DOC wines of Latium derived from the Cesanese variety, for which this particular part of Italy represents an ideal habitat.

The Cesaese del Piglio is made almost entirely of grapes of the Cesanese di Affile, a local clone of Cesanese Comune, which can also be used in the grape mixture. In conformity with local tradition, the production discipline permits the use of a small percentage of white grapes in order to boost the wine’s level of acidity and enhance its odors.

While the Secco or dry version of the wine is excellent because of its substance, elegance and capacity for aging, the Dolce or sweet and Abboccato or sweetish versions are highly popular. Always racked precociously the Cesanese del Piglio can be considered the ancestor of the "novelli" or nouveaux wines, which it resembles in that it goes exceptionally well with chestnuts.
