Tiberio Cerasuolo Rose
Fresh aromas and flavors of red cherry and small red berries. Lovely acid-fruit balance with a bright, crisp, clean, floral finish.
Pair with pizza, pasta, fish dishes with sauce, cheeses, meat.
The 2021 Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo is a deep red color, so much so that you’d be hard-pressed to call it a Rosé. Crushed raspberries mix with hints of licorice, rose petals and a spritz of sea breeze to form its alluring bouquet. This is round and pliant with a gentle inner sweetness offset by citrus-tinged acidity, as sour melon and hard red candies resonate throughout. A hint of licorice lingers under an air of lavender, as the 2021 tapers off lightly structured yet full of lively energy. Cristiana Tiberio keeps telling me that she enjoys her Cerasuolo when it’s young and fresh, yet I can’t help but want to know what this beauty will look like in another year or two. That said, it’s stunning already today. 2022 – 2024
