2020 TIBERIO Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo 75cl (Abruzzo, Italy)
Style - Rose
Grapes - 100% Montepulciano
Tasting - It *is* a rosé we promise. Although much darker than the trendy ones. This is near enough a definitive example of the style from Abruzzo. And rightly lauded by the critics. Think of it as a light red if it helps.
FYI: Amazingly the deep colour here is obtained after only 20 minutes of skin maceration! Far less time than would be used in Provence pinks. It's just the skins of MOntepulciano are loaded with pigment.
