Vinous: 92 Points for Torre Raone‘s Cerasuolo

Cerasuolo d’ Abruzzo DOC 2022


Grapes: 100% Montepulciano d’Abruzzo. Vinification is “in white” after a short cryomaceration in the press (6 hours) of the free-run must.
Nose: intense, moderately persistent, fine and delicate, floral notes that blend with ample aromas of fresh fruit such as cherry, strawberry and mango.
Taste: dry, quite warm, quite fresh and with a good structure with hints of cherry, strawberry, yellow plum, mango and a marked acidity reminiscent of pomegranate; savory with long persistence, balanced and harmonious.

“The 2022 Cerasuolo d’ Abruzzo seduces with a blend of cherries and spice complemented by mint and lavender. This is deeply textural yet energetic throughout, with zesty acidity guiding its rose-tinged strawberry fruits and sour citrus nuances that add lovely contrast. It finishes with a mineral twang full of youthful tension, ending with a liquorice and tart cranberry concentration. Lovely.”
