Mission Briefing

Codename:

Step Up

Today’s Il Feuduccio 2012 Cerasuolo D’Abruzzo is right up the alley of any Rosé fan - who’s looking to add a touch of excitement to their cellar.

Today’s wine is handcrafted from 100% Montepulciano grapes, giving it an earthen complexity that you won’t often find in a lot of domestic Rosés. While you’ll find the expected hints of wild strawberry and raspberry, you’ll also find notes of earth and spice that really kick it up a notch.

Don’t miss out on today’s summer treat. Cheers!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Beautiful, slightly dark cherry red, with just the slightest touch of copper.

Smell:

A bit more aromatic complexity than your typical summer sipper. Touches of wild strawberry and raspberry meld with notes of grilled sweet plum, cherry tobacco leaf, softly tilled earth, toasty warm spice, and a slight kiss of blackberry liquor.

Taste:

The flavor profile builds on the promise of the nose, with a braised dark fruit compote of plum, black cherry, and blackberry delicately laid overtop touches of nectarine, summer forest floor, European cherry licorice, and pomegranate herbal tea.

Finish:

A touch darker and more soulful than your standard Rosé, and all the more delicious for it. A lovely drinking wine. ,

Pairing:

A summer grilled flatbread, with fire roasted tomatoes, spiced pork sausage, and fresh crumbly cheese.
