Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo 2014

Sangria called, they want their fruits back. The prime summer drink. Doesn’t smell like much but tastes like a garden party.
Yes, that’s Claritin in the background. It’s become such a prominent part of my life this spring it’s even made it onto Delectable, congrats.

Azienda Agricola Valentini

Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo 2011

Unofficial Thursday HdR opening dinner with a loose “non-Rhône” theme. A funky start. One of only a few bottles still more than half full at the end of the evening so I know it wasn’t a hit with the group. Took it back to San Diego and it was quite good on nights 4 and 5. Obviously needs air. — 22 days ago

@Steve Anderson too bad for your group, I’d be more than happy to drink Valentini every day! A truly legendary producer. Their Trebbiano is one of the best whites in Italy, no doubt.

@Andrew Mecoli - I’ve had the 07, 08, and 11, enjoying them all. Some liked this, but I think it just got lost in the number of open bottles and the rush to get to some of the big reds with our steaks. That just meant more for me the following days! I’m a big fan of the Trebbiano as well.
