Located in the region of Abruzzo, Tiberio stands as a testament to the enduring legacy of winemaking. This family-owned winery has been crafting exceptional wines for generations, harnessing the blessings of fertile soil and a favourable climate. The vineyards boast some of Italy's oldest grapevines, their roots intertwined with the ancient Roman times from which they draw inspiration. Tiberio proudly upholds the winemaking traditions passed down through the ages, ensuring that every bottle encapsulates the essence of the region and the unique characteristics of each grape variety. At Tiberio, the winemaking process is executed with meticulous care, with every step carefully considered and flawlessly executed. From the hand-harvesting of the grapes to the thoughtful selection of oak barrels for aging, no detail is overlooked. The result is a remarkable collection of wines that effortlessly showcase the true essence of the region. In the year 2000, Riccardo Tiberio stumbled upon a rare plot of Trebbiano Abruzzese vines, a discovery that would shape the future of the winery. Recognizing the potential of this find, he made the decision to acquire the land and dedicate it to producing single estate wines. Initially, a selection of indigenous and international grape varieties adorned the vineyards, but with time, the focus shifted to Pecorino and Trebbiano Abruzzese, reflecting the estate's unwavering commitment to quality and showcasing the unique characteristics of Abruzzo's native grape varieties. Among Tiberio wines, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo stands proudly as one of their most celebrated creations. This full-bodied red wine is crafted from the Montepulciano grape, flourishing in the clay and limestone soils that define the region. With its deep ruby color and captivating aromas of ripe berries and spices, it entices the senses and transports the drinker to the heart of Abruzzo. Alongside their renowned reds, Tiberio takes equal pride in their Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo, a rosé wine that captures the very essence of summer in a single glass. Crafted from the Montepulciano grape, this rosé embodies a delicate balance between fruitiness and acidity. Its flavors of cherry, strawberry and hints of Mediterranean herbs evoke memories of sun-drenched afternoons and warm evenings, leaving a lasting impression on the palate. 

Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo is a distinct style of wine produced in the Abruzzo region of Italy. It is made primarily from the Montepulciano grape variety, which is known for its dark red colour and rich flavors. The term "Cerasuolo" refers to the cherry-like color of the wine, which is achieved through a shorter maceration period during fermentation. Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo wines are typically dry and medium-bodied, with vibrant acidity and a refreshing character. They often exhibit aromas and flavors of red berries, cherries and floral notes. 

The Tiberio Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo 2022 is made from 100% Montepulciano grapes. It is classified as Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo DOP and is produced in Cugnoli (Pe). The vineyard's soil composition is limestone, and the vines are trained using a canopy system with a density of 2500 vines per hectare. The average vine age is 52 years, and the yield is 50 Hl. During the harvest, the grapes are hand-picked in October. The vinification process involves cold maceration with the skins and only the free run juice is used, without any pressing. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks, and the wine is aged in the bottle. The Tiberio Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo 2022 is a vibrant and captivating wine with its beautiful bright pinkish-red colour. This wine delights the senses with its fresh and enticing aromas and flavors of red cherry and small red berries. What sets this wine apart is its impeccable balance between acidity and fruit, creating a harmonious symphony on the palate. The acidity adds a refreshing zest, while the fruit flavors provide a burst of juicy sweetness. The finish of this Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo is nothing short of remarkable. It is bright, crisp and clean, leaving a lasting impression with its floral notes that dance on the taste buds. Each sip is a delightful journey, inviting you to savour the intricate layers of flavors and aromas. This wine pairs well with a variety of dishes, including pizza, pasta, fish dishes with sauce, cheese and meat. 

The 2022 Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo seduces with its perfumed blend of crushed cherries and strawberries, complemented by rhubarb, violets and sweet smoke. It’s racy and sleek, built on energy, with a mineral core that grips the palate. A cascade of wild berries is excited by tantalizing acidity. This finishes dramatically long, lightly structured and full of zesty tension as salty nuances combine with tart red fruits and hints of sour citrus. The 2022 takes Cerasuolo to a whole new level. This is more a red than a Rosé, and with a bouquet to match.  Drink 2024 – 2027. - Vinous, 94 Points.
