Tenuta De Sterlich Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo 2022

MCF Rare Wine

De Sterlich's Cerasuolo is brilliant. Take the texture, depth, complexity and ageworthy structure of Valentini's version and roll the tone knob off even further.  This is a much darker shade of pink, bordering on co-ferment/light red, and it has a dazzling aromatic profile that's stuffed with mineral-packed dark fruits, earth and savory/smoky nuance. On the back end, the structural elements so inherent to Montepulciano, hold it firmly upright.  But, intertwined through all of that is a fresh, lively, brightly lit spirit that keeps it both lofty and refreshing. The character is, at once, naturally wide open, yet surprisingly refined. The best rosé of the year so far!
