Piglio is a town of humble dwellings; Abbia Nòva was an abbey from an area where Benedictine monasteries were common; the monks would create libraries, teach agriculture, and plant vines. Today Daniele Proietti and Pierluca Proietti oversee the growth of the Cesanese and Passerina varieties, both indigenous to the Lazio region. Olive groves, medicinal herbs, walnuts and a vegetable garden are also maintained at the Abbia Nòva property. Wine is made from four different vineyards and olive oil from five different groves. San Giovanni is one of the contradas (vineyards) devoted to the Cesanese and Passerina varieties, and olive groves. Daniele and Pierluca emanate their humble farming families, a fusion of local tradition and deep culture.
This Cesanese comes from sandy, volcanic soils out of a 25 year old vineyard site. The fruit is completely destemmed and goes on to age for 12 months in amphora and one month in small barrels.
