Located in the town of Pilio, about thirty miles east of Rome, Abbia Nova is a brand-new artisanal winery by cousins Daniele and Pierluca Proietti. The name 'Abbia Nova' refers to an ancient Roman road linking the town of Piglio, in the southwestern part of the region, with Abruzzo.
We love enjoying wines made from obscure grape varieties that are making a comeback. And Senza Vandalismi Rosso is one of those special wines. Made from the ancient Roman grape Cesanese d'Affile, this handcrafted wine is juicy with aromas of fresh red berries and also of darker fruit such as blackberry. There is smoke, hints of fresh herbs and a shy note of nutmeg too. The acidity on the palate is vibrant and full of lively energy.
A delight on its own or paired with spicy Italian dishes.
