Cascaglione, Lazio IGT Red Wine

Cascaglione is a wine to try and to remember because it is a real pleasure to find such a special combination of the power of Cesanese combined with the softness of the territory.

We are in San Vito Romano, on the Prenestini mountains at about 600 meters above sea level, and the vines of the Cascaglione area enjoy a particular microclimate that makes them recognizable and pleasant.

Cascaglione is a wine produced from slightly overripe Cesanese grapes harvested to soften the roughness of the wine and immediately make it pleasant to the nose and palate. The wine is aged in steel before being bottled and left to rest for another 12 months.

On the nose the notes of earth, musk, undergrowth and cherry typical of the Cesanese immediately arrive, combined with notes of coffee. A ruby ​​colored wine with garnet reflections

Good persistence with soft tannins. The alcohol content between 14 and 15 degrees makes it perfect for grilled meats or to accompany aged cheeses.

On the site of the Il Merlo winery, Antonio Carrarini wanted to indicate his love for the territory, also indicating the combinations with the cuisine of San Vito Romano. The Cascaglione is recommended for polenta with pork ribs and pecorino.

A love story between San Vito Romano and the Carrarini family that has continued since the 1960s.
