Valentini is considered to be among the finest producers in Italy. They produce just the three wines, each is at the top of their categories. The Valentini Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo shares the upper tier of this category with few other wines. Made from Montepulciano, it has an intense cherry red colour with the wine under going spontaneous fermentation in oak barrels. The winery is tight lipped on maceration time or other wine making details, but this wine offers a unique experience in the world of wine. A complex wine, it offers a beguilingr ange of aromas with elegant notes of raspberry, currant, cassis, wild berries, chestnuts and sweet spice. Powerful, but elegant it is drinking well now, but could be aged further.
