Offering a vibrant cherry hue, this wine bursts with succulent vine-ripened blackberries, crisp orchard fruits, dew-laden roses and crushed saline minerals; it's a treat for the senses! A gentle but persistent acidity complements the fruit-forward flavors of this '15 Cerasuolo, and cheek-piquing minerals linger on the finish, making this charming wine very food-friendly. Grapes ferment in temperature-controlled steel for about two weeks, and the wine ages in stainless steel for six months before bottling. Cerasuolo, the Abbruzzese word for "rose," shows us how delicious and practical a blush wine made from the Montepulciano grape can be; pair it with classic fish dishes of the Adriatic, as well as pizza and tomato-based pastas.
Cantina Frentana Per Linda is located in Rocca San Giovanni, a province of Chieti. This is an agricultural cooperation formed by 500 vine growers who attend 750 hectares of vineyards in the Area Frentana, a name that is derived by the ancient people, Frentani, who populated that region. The cantina was founded in 1958 by the doctor, Francesco D'Agostino, who was trying to protect the local producers from the uncertainties linked to the free market of the grapes. At first, the idea was to vinify the grapes and sell the wine to bottling companies. Over time, this society became a winery itself and took over the entire process of winemaking. This evolution required ample changes to the productive and organizational model of operation. The company added a lot more attention and care to the quality of each different phase of the process, from the vineyards implants to the bottling, and the sales services. Per Linda, is a private label that Cantina Frentana is making especially with Vignaiol
