Caparrone Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo - Boutinot

Caparrone Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo 2021


Azienda Agricola Contesa

The Montepulciano grape produces a very distinctive style of rosé typical of the Abruzzo region. Known as Cerasuolo, this is fresh, characterful and ripe with vibrant cherry fruit and savoury notes. A 'grown-up' style of rosé perfectly suited to drink with food.

Meet the producer

Rocco Pasetti's superbly sited, 50 hectare, estate lies in the heart of the Collecorvino district in the hills northwest...



From Montepulciano grapes cultivated in Contesa's Colle Caparrone vineyard in the region of Collecorvino. The vineyard faces southeast at 200m altitude. The grapes are typically harvested in the first 10 days of October. They are fermented in stainless steel at controlled temperatures, followed by a partial malolactic fermentation. The wine is matured for around 4 months in stainless steel.

Tasting notes

Vibrant cerise hue, with zesty aromas of red berry and cherry fruit and fresh floral notes. The palate has juicy, bitter cherry flavours with ripe and rounded fruit, offset by crisp acidity and leading to a mouthwatering finish.

Food match

A great match to red or white meats - a versatile rosé to match barbeques or roast lamb.
