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.

Located in the town of Piglio, 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. They farm 7 hectares of vines, mostly inherited from Daniele’s father, with many of the vines being indigenous varietals to the area. Some of these vines are at least eighty years old.

The cousins follow a combination of natural and traditional methods both in the vineyards and in the cellar, starting with organic and then moving to biodynamic principles. They avoid treatments like sulphur and copper and instead use natural resistance methods that they produce themselves.
