  4. Cerasuolo Montepulciano d’Abruzzo (Organic Grapes) DOC

Made from 100% Montepulciano grapes, Valle Reale's Cerasuolo, which translates as "cherry-red," is a deeply colored rosé produced by a short maceration before separating the juice from the skins.  Cool summer nights, windswept days, and thin, stony soils characterize the section of vineyard from which the fruit for this wine is sourced.  Spontaneous fermentation initiated and carried out by indigenous yeasts add further to the complex aromas and flavors of this wine.

Tasting Notes

Intense salmon-pink in color, with generous aromas of sour cherry, strawberry jam and wild herbs. This wine is medium-bodied and fresh, with layers of bright fruit flavor, brisk acidity, and defining minerality that culminate in a long and balanced finish.

Food Pairing

Valle Reale Cerasuolo is recommended with grilled tuna, swordfish, quail, white meats, or mixed pasta salads.
