Luminous pink-red. Bright aromas of red cherry, redcurrant, blood orange and botanical herbs. Then bright and juicy, with laser-like acidity lifting and extending the red fruit flavors on the juicy, long, floral and slightly saline finish. A very precise, seamless Cerasuolo with no hard edges and sneaky concentration. (Ian D'Agata, Vinous, May 2019)

Bright deep pink. Musky aromas and flavors of dried cherry and rhubarb, with hints of licorice and herbs adding complexity. Broad and deep on the palate, displaying a chewy, fleshy texture typical of the hot year but also very good freshness. Finishes with serious grip and lingering florality.

Concentrated pink/purple color. Red cherries, raspberries, black currants, elevated aromatic intensity. Highly acidic and full body. Herbal notes on the finish.

Totally unexpected depth and minerality greeted me on the nose, showing strawberry, raspberry, wild flowers, chalk dust and crushed stone minerality. On the palate, I found lifted textures, yet with contrasting cherry fruit that saturated the senses and provided grip, while brisk acidity witj hints of blood orange maintained an amazingly fresh experience. It finished with a twang of tart red berry and hints of herbs, yet remarkably fresh. Wow!

Oh man. Such a good bottle of wine. Is it red? Is it rose? Who cares? It's got gorgeous pure fruit and fresh acidity.

2016. Love that translucent color. Rich and fleshy, with aromatics of flowers and orange peel, ripe raspberry flavors, lip-smacking acidity, noticeable structure, and a lengthy finish. Just in time for front porch parties.

Wild strawberry on the nose, perfumey, sour strawberries on the flavor profile; Smarties actually. Citrus as well. Refreshing.

2015. Juicy raspberry fruit and orange peel beneath mountain flowers. Gorgeous in all ways.

Holy hell this was wildly delicious. Fresh, bright, tart, loads of acidity, with a hint of spice as well

2012. Fairly simple and straightforward yet offers a bit of intellectual appeal. Not Valentini, but fairy solid nonetheless. Curious to explore more Cerasuolo.
