Grape Varieties - Cesanese

Cesanese
You might like to try...

This is the red grape of Lazio, that central Italian region surrounding Rome. Named after a village - Cesano - lying near the capital, it is conceivable that mentions of this variety can be found as far back as the early 17th century.

There are two clones of Cesanese: commune - from which this wine is made, and di Affile, which is considered to be of higher quality.

Cesanese is tricky to cultivate and vinify, and is susceptible to mildew.
