Why we love it
The Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo is a rose wine made with the Montepulciano grape variety is made from old vines that have been planted in 1970. The harvest is done manually, after which the grapes undergone short maceration of the skins in order to maintain the freshness and the aroma. The smell has many fruits: cherries, raspberries and flowers. The taste is fresh and fruity with a lively acidity and a nice softness. A glass full of cherries, raspberries and sour cherries!!
