Tiberio Cerasuolo D'Abruzzo (DOP) 2019 (Italy: Abruzzo) (ID# 3631)

Name Tiberio Cerasuolo D'Abruzzo (DOP) 2019 (ID# 3631)
Varietal Montepulciano
Region Italy: Abruzzo
Notes "The 2019 Tiberio Cerasuolo is wonderfully fresh and perfumed, showing depths of smoky minerals on the nose, giving way to notes of ripe strawberry and wild flowers, with a hint of crushed limestone and chalk. On the palate, silky textural depths are offset by saline-minerality and brisk acids, as notes of cherry with a hint of orange citrus wash across the senses. The finish is long, with a twang of tart red berry and hints of wild herbs, almost salty, and begging me to take another sip." (Vinous) WINE ENTHUSIAST TOP 100 WINES OF THE YEAR, RANK #64

Additional Notes

"This richly hued wine starts off with a nose of freshly pressed cherries and blackberries—stems and all. While the fruit is intense and concentrated, there are earthy base notes of herbs and bramble that tie it all together. It’s full, yet fresh on the palate, showing amazing purity to the berry-fruit flavors. Slicks of crushed stone and herbs keep this lifted and energized. It’s an excellent offering from an estate winery located in the Pescara province of Abruzzo." (Wine Enthusiast)
