Fresh aromas and flavors of red cherry and small red berries. Lovely acid-fruit balance with a bright, crisp, clean, floral finish. Best served chilled and accompanying pizza, pasta, fish dishes with sauce, cheese, meat.
Is it dark Rosé, or pale Red...? You decide.
Cerasuolo is an unusual style of Montepulciano from Abruzzo. It is likely rooted in the mountainous areas of Abruzzo struggling to fully mature the Montepulciano grape, the resulting wine not taking on the full, deep colour expected from fruit grown at lower levels. Now, it is a style and appellation of its own. Chill it down and treat it like a light red or a heavy rose. It doesn't really matter, it's delicious
Our vineyards are planted with massal selection of old vines of native grape varieties (Pecorino, Trebbiano Abruzzese and Montepulciano) and are located in the area of Cugnoli, near the beautiful Maiella and Gran Sasso mountains. sea level, in a beautiful windswept landscape that is characterized by high day-night temperature variations and a relatively cool microclimate.

We never replace the entire Vineyard, ever. Only vine by vine as needed. The vines are replaced by young plants grown from buds of sister vines from same Vineyard.
