|Cirelli Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo|
The Cirelli Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo 2012 is tasting great right now. Lots of cherry fruit and acidity and a little bit of that salty terroir thing going on, too. It is also a critter wine, notice the beautiful butterfly, which I am sure is recognizable to all as the sign of freedom and transformation (okay, I am reaching here . . .) but whatever. The wine is good.
The grapes for this wine were grown specifically to be direct press rose` and that has some advantages. Lower alcohol and higher acidity would be the most obvious. And now that the weather is getting really hot, and our rose` season is finally upon us, this is a great wine for those hot days.
