2021 Rosa-Ae Cerasuolo Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOC

Case of 12 bottles

Varietals: 100% Montepulciano (organic)

Vinification/Ageing: ½ saignee method Montepulciano, and ½ Montepulciano vinified as a white wine; ageing in stainless steel.

Description: Medium-rose colour with a fresh and rich nose of red berry and garden flower. Dry, well balanced with vibrant minerality and a long finish. The white vinification method produces a better summer rose while the saignee method creates a fuller, fruity wine to enjoy in colder seasons. This is a rosé to pour year round. 

92+ Points - Vinous: "The color of the 2021 Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo is stunning; a deep translucent red with violet shades, as a vivid mix of wet stones, strawberries and dusty rose form it's compelling bouquet. It enters the palate with an initial burst of ripe wild berries, yet quickly gains in tension, as zesty acids and citrus tones reverberate throughout. The Rosa-ae finishes with an amazing persistence of purple and blue tinted florals all over a coating of salty minerals and the slightest tug of sweet tannin. This is a beauty today, yet it will also excel over the next year or two in a cold cellar. Well done."
