Italian rose from Abruzzo? Certo! Located in between Lazio and Marche, this is the perfect spot for winemaking. Mountains, seaside and some good care from Cristiana who makes this Montepulciano and Cerasuolo combo, a beast of a rose. A few hours on skins but long enough to extract all the potential and character of the grapes, let it rest for 12 months in concrete, bottle it, sip it. Very saline wine, a little savoury, powerful yet elegant, it can be the one to sip by the pool but it also deserves a good meal to match its personality. Dark rose or light red? Well you read the notes, now you decide. Salute!
