Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo Superiore
DOC 2017 “Fossimatto”

(14,5% AbV). The organic certified Cerasuolo Superiore comes from the vineyard Vigne del Pozzo where the Montepulciano is planted. Skin and must remain together 18 hrs at a low temperature, while fermentation starts at 19° C in stainless steel tanks. It ages 6 months on the lees and is released the spring following the harvest. All this provides the authentic Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo color: a deep cherry morello with purple shades, a real feast for your eyes. The nose is delicate, yet already releases hints of the minerality that will be unveiled in the mouth. Fresh and crispy, the mouth is filled with a taste of black currant and raspberries, while the finish is marked by a balsamic note and a pleasant feel of licorice root. The Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo is a cornerstone of the wine tradition of Abruzzo. It is not simply a rosé and not a classic red. It is an wine unique, which well matches cuisine styles in balance between strong flavors and elegant taste. Unfiltered. 6.834 bottles produced.
