Riccardi Reale Cesanese Collepazzo 2015
When I visit the trattorie of Rome, I always look for a tasty Cesanese, the unofficial Roman Red that is much more satisfying than the Frascati white. Here’s one that is superb and crazy cheap for what you get.
A delightful, aromatic red made by natural winemaker Piero Riccardi, this 100% Cesanese wine grown in the Olevano Romano DOC region, bursts with red cherries, raspberries, marzipan and wild country sweet herbs. The finish on Piero’s wine is sumptuously long.
Pair this with classic Roman pasta dishes like my porky favorite Bucatini all’Amatriciana, or pair it up with grilled sausages, roast wild boar, lentils with coriander, or pan-fried veal fillets.
