Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo “Le Vasche” – 100% Montepulciano
We hand-pick in small baskets around mid-September.
The grapes are de-stemmed and pressed whole.
The must ferments spontaneously in steel tanks.
After bottling, it ages in the bottle for a few months before going on sale.
The name “Cerasuolo” comes from the term “cerasa”, that is cherry, the small and delicate fruit that this wine makes come to mind in its colour shades, and sensory notes.
Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo is a unique wine that can hardly be classified within the usual wine typologies. It is rather a category in and of itself.
It is a rosé wine made from Montepulciano grapes, making it a wine of contrasts by nature. Between a red – from which it takes structure and complexity – and a rosé – of which it keeps the freshness, fineness, and enjoyability.
It is the prior companion of Abruzzo’s traditional home cuisine.
Made in the past by processing red and white grape varieties together, it is extremely versatile, pairing very well a large number of dishes.
