2017 Cerasuolo, Valentini, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

Lovely concentration and ripeness to the 2017 Cerasuolo, with just a hint of fava bean and blood orange on the nose, and hedgerow fruit on the palate. There's a depth here that comes from the vintage, but it's in no way overblown. Lovely.

About this producer

Azienda Agricola Valentini

The greatest, most historic name in Abruzzo winemaking, and one of the most prestigious in all of Italy, Valentini makes wines as brilliant as they are rare. Wines have been made here since the 1600s, but it was only in the 1950s that Edoardo focused on the estate, and bottled his own wines. He produced wine from 1956 until his death in 2006, and it’s now his talented, enigmatic son Paolo Francesco who makes the wines. They make one red, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, and one white, Trebbiano d’Abruzzo, not to mention olive oil which adorns the best restaurant tables across the region.
