100% Montepulciano d’Abruzzo shines in the hands of Iole Rabasco. The small, humble estate is at a higher elevation with coastal influence. Comprised of mostly Montepulciano that are 40+ years in age. She farms organically and the estate has never seen chemicals. The Cancellato bottling is 20% wine from 2019 along with free-run, early harvest juice from 2020. Spontaneous fermentation. Aged in stainless steel tanks until bottling in the Spring. No filtering or fining, and very low SO2.
Straight up juicy cherry wine: sour cherries, cherry cola, cherry extract, maybe some strawberries hibiscus. Delicious fermented grape juice.
