2018 Vini Rabasco 'Cancelli' Rosato

Abruzzo, Italy

A real cherry invasion, maybe even sour cherries, a dabble of strawberries and a bit jammy. The wine is soft and supple, made from Montepulciano from 40 year old vines in a reductive method to prevent too much oxidation. An amazing value Italia imported and organic rosé. You'll find it hard to beat.

About the maker

Abruzzo is known for mass produced wines and industrial agriculture, but the Rabasco estate has been practicing organic for the entirety of its 50+ year existence.

The 3.5 hectare Rabasco estate is located in the village of Pianella, province of Pescara, in the heart of Abruzzo. Placed in its own micro climate and the Adriatic is some 40 kilometers away while the base of Gran Sasso flanks the western edge of the Rabasco property. Lole's vineyards and olive groves, once inherited, are fortunate to have never been treated with chemicals.

Almost the entire vineyards is montepulciano with a couple rows of trebbiano. The soils are calcareous clay mixed with alluvial sediment and fossil remains. Vines are trained in the traditional style pergola, all worked by hand. Yields are kept low but not excessively low as she prefers her wines with more acidity and freshness than power and extract.
