Faraone, Le Vigne di Faraone, Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo, 2021
(at Rome, 19 Jul 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2027
A dark Cerasuolo that could be easily mistaken for a light red: 48 hours on the skins is enough time for the anthocyanin-rich Montepulciano to release Nebbiolo-like shades. The hearty aromas of dark cherry, smoke, liquorice and rust lead to a full-bodied palate loaded with luscious flavours of pomegranate and bramble. A mineral tang underpins the structure and extends the deep, tactile and slightly earthy finish.
