If you’re looking for an Aperitivo wine, or a wine that you can enjoy without preparing a whole meal, this rosè by Masciarelli is for you!
Rosé wines have a tendency to get a bad rep, but that reality is slowly changing as the quality of Rosé wines is increasingly improving internationally and regionally here in Italy. Leading the way in much-improved Rosé quality is the Abruzzo-born Masciarelli wine estate, captained today by the superb Marina Cvetic.
With the hand and inspiration of late husband Gianni Masciarelli to lead the way forward, the Masciarelli wine family is ever-focused on upping their Rosé game, intent on brushing aside the clichés the world of wine lovers has absorbed about Rosé wines in general.
With a much more intense, darker character than most Rosé selections, the Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo Superiore vintage is the result of a different kind of vinification, one that quickly gives the wine its telltale pink color that is so charming and appealing. So, this is a wine to enjoy for both its appearance and its flavor profile - a good thing for wine lovers!
If you’re looking for your next Aperitivo wine, or a wine that you can enjoy a glass of without preparing a whole meal, this is a great option. However, if you’re preparing your dinner and looking for something a little different than your usual selections, you’d be well-off with this intriguing Southern Italian Rosé selection from the heart of Abruzzo.
Crafted in the Maiello Mountains, the Montepulciano grapes of the Masciarelli Rosé selection are enhanced by the wine’s production methods, and the end result? A super, top-shelf Rosé that rightly takes its place in the coveted Fine Wines category.
