Juicy, pink, bright, cherry and pomegranate
Established in 1999 by Fausto Albanese and Adriana Galasso when they began to cultivate Montepulciano vines planted in 1972 by Adriana’s grandfather, Rocco. In 2004, they bought 8 hectares and planted Trebbiano and Pecorino. They now own 21ha located 25km from the Adriatic Sea near the mountain range of Gran Sasso d’Italia. The name of the estate comes from a large 14th century fresco painting, found in the local church of Saint Maria in Piano, meaning “Tower of the Blessed”. If there was ever a wine to describe summer in a glass it would be this Cerasuolo. Translated as 'cherry', Cerasuolo is a very light red wine, boarding on rosé. Don't be fooled thinking this is a pale, pink and light style of rosé like you might find in Provence. This 100% Montepulciano has more complexity, character and density than it's French neighbour.
