Cerasuolo can be a tricky term in Italian wine as it has a few different uses. In general it means "cherry red" in color and can be used to describe the overall color of any rosato (rose) wine. However, here it has specific reference to the Denomination of Origin Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo where the term is applied as part of the DOC to mean rosato that comes from Abruzzo. The DOC "Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo" is reserved for wines from vineyards in the region composed of at least 85% Montepulciano grapes. This Cerasuolo from Sette Venti is itself 100% Montepulciano and untypically structured for a "pink wine." Yet, it is round and supple with bright cherry and strawberry fruit as well as an orange citrus tang. It has excellent length and will convince you that a rose can have both finesse and power!
