Cristiana Tiberio - Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo, Abruzzo, Italy (2021)
Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo is amongst the deepest, red-coloured styles of rosé.
A wine of strawberries, rose petals and salinity. Very fresh...lots of perfumed and savoury minerality on the palate. Citrus fruits, ripe strawberry and wild flowers, with the impression of rocks and chalk on the palate.
100% massal selection Montepulciano d’Abruzzo grapes grown on south-facing limestone soils at an altitude of 380m. The fermentation started with a cold maceration and no pressing of the skins in stainless steel and no malolactic conversion to preserve freshness and acidity.
