Villa Gemma Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo 2019 (90 WE)
“This vibrantly hued cherry-red Cerasuolo kicks off with brisk aromas of red-apple peel and Morello cherry, underpinned by a soft washed cheese-rind note. The palate is rounded and well integrated, echoing the fruit tones of the nose and lifted by tangy crushed stone.”
Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo DOC
Perhaps the finest rosé production area in Italy, and one of the few appellations dedicated only to rosé, Cerasuolo has a long history of producing serious rosé, and showcasing how well the Montepulciano grape is adapted to rosé. Masciarelli first produced this wine in 1986, only 5 years after the winery was founded. With deep fruit and structure but no shortage of pleasure, it is a rosé you can take to the dinner table.
Founded by Abruzzo native Gianni Masciarelli in 1981, Masciarelli and its wines have become the standard-bearer for the Abruzzo region, and an inspiration to all emerging Italian wine regions. After a summer in Champagne, Gianni Masciarelli became convinced that world-class wines could be produced in Abruzzo, and through tremendous vision and non-stop innovation, Masciarelli became one of the most admired wineries in Italy.
