2020 Olivastri Marcantonio Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo

2020 Olivastri Tommaso Marcantonio Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo DOC

Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo is not quite red, not quite rosato, and takes well to a chill. For their bottling, Olivastri ferments the grapes with temperature control, then ages the wine for two months in stainless steel and two more in bottle prior to release. Its color is pale clear ruby, very light, and the fragrance is profusely floral, with notes of wild rose mingling with strawberries and cherries. The palate is substantial and plummy, with a tawny honeyed note like light through dark amber. Its light tannins and acidity are harmonious, and the wine finishes dark, like black plum skin. Pair this wine with a mixed cheese and charcuterie board.
