Cancelli Rosato


The 40-year-old vines growing at the Iole Rabasco estate in Abruzzo, Italy—where Cancelli Rosato is produced—are almost all montepulciano. They’re worked by hand and never treated with chemicals. The result is a low-intervention wine (no added sulfur and no filtering, with spontaneous filtration) that’s bright and lively, with notes of red currants and strawberries and just a little acidity. Slightly chilled, it makes for a delightful spring or summertime sip.
