MARCANTONIO Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo DOC 2019
Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo is counted among the wines most deeply linked to the Abruzzese peasant tradition. Its production was in fact widespread in rural areas and mainly for summer consumption, as a refreshment during hard work in the hot fields.
Marcantonio is the name of the hilly estates where we grow the grapes for this bottle vinification, purchased from our family from a well-known local landowner whose historical residences can still be found between the provinces of Chieti and Pescara.
Cerasuolo today represents one of the most characterizing wines of our production, which continues going towards growing appreciation, giving us wonderful satisfactions and above all sensations: from the pleasant aromas of small red fruits, to the fresh, savory, mineral and decisive palate. It is a wine of great versatility, to drink for an aperitif or at the table for a pairing that keeps everyone agreeding: we always say 'If you can't choose a specific wine, choose Cerasuolo, it will be for sure a great pairing!'
