Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo 2015

$98.00

Vivid, very dark red; this is the authentic color of Abruzzo’s traditionally made Cerasuolo wines, which are the deepest, darkest-hued pink wines in the world. Strongly perfumed on the nose, it features candied red cherry and floral red berry aromas complicated by botanical herbs, without any of the funk that typically characterizes Emidio Pepe’s reds. Sappy, palate-staining strawberry and red cherry flavors are lifted by juicy acidity; a violet nuance develops with air. Closes very long and fresh, offering gentle tannins and a tangy drink-me-up quality that is irresistible. This outstanding wine is much more like a light red wine than any rosé you might have tried. It also proves what I have been saying for years: though unfortunately not imported into the US, the Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo is the best wine made by Emidio Pepe in almost every vintage. Drink this wine slightly chilled on a hot day and surrender to its infinite charms.
