Il Monticello (Davide Neri)

Serasuolo Liguria Cerasuolo Rosé 2020

Tart raspberries, green pear, and white peach… but not as rich as one might think with the high acidity. Almost effervescent on open. Would work with any high-fat food — 6 days ago

Nose faint but nuanced. Apple, an astringent note like a vinegar, maybe kumquat. Restrained. Glass #2 at Asta with Marmot #1. (Glass #1 an unremarkable rose.) — 2 days ago

Definitely one of my most memorable wine experiences. Incredible nose, wonderful flavor and impressive length. Reminds me of Valentini and Pepe. Love this wine.

Giusi Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo Rosato 2019

This Italian rosato lights up the glass beautifully in a blaze of cherry red. The nose - the expected cherry, strawberry, cassis notes - has an undercurrent of tar and is draped in a muscular earthiness. The fruit flavors come along on the palate bright and fresh, with a beautiful acidity. The grapes, by the way, are Montepulciano with limited skin contact and steel vinification and aging. — 2 months ago

Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Cerasuolo 2009

Give a ring if there's anything else like it as a rose
It mingles with light reds easily, but has the fun part of a fresh rose with the complexity that unfolds over and over
The elegance is somewhere between a Volnay and a Barolo
Cola, raspberries, sweet tobacco, white choc, salted caramel, mou, forest floor, mushroom and slightly grillée
Nearly fizzy when opened
It was worth the wait
A star!!

Wow! Nice job shipping your whole cellar across. What a big job! I've been reading up about them since your note. They sound amazing... especially the Cerasuolo. It's an area I need to explore more. Tricky doing it from Australia! 😁

@Travis W Thanks, there was a lot of planning 🙂 Good luck with your hunt for Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo. Mind don't mix it with other Cerasuolo wines and one recommendation..look for Valentini or Pepe, everything else isn't quite as worth...

Cherry pits, raspberries, mineral. Much better closer to room temp. Tannic grip closer to a red wine. Long and complex 🔥 — 6 days ago

Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico Frappato Nero d'Avola 2017

I love these wines that are most definitely not playing to the masses. Medium garnet with a wide brim. The nose is highly attractive fresh out of the gate. A ridiculous amount of fruit here with blackberries, black cherries, and strawberries. Eucalyptus and smoke. Herbs and spice. Beautiful earth and foresty goodness with the suggestion of funk. Terrific aromas.

COS uses clay amphorae for storage and biodynamic viticulture to produce wines as naturally as possible. 60% Nero d’Avola, 40% Frappato di Vittoria. This is all about the terroir, it’s a glorious wine that truly speaks of a place and is driven by that. The acid is nice and vibrant and the tannins round. Plenty more fruit to be found on the palate with red and black fruits. More dusty earth, leather, and stones. A long finish that leaves you wanting more. And my friends, you do want more.
