Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo

DOC area for rosé wine in the Italian region of Abruzzo. This used to be a variant of the DOC wine Montepulciano d'Abruzzo until its own DOC classification was granted in 2011. The zone comprises mainly hilly areas in the four provinces of Chieti (605 communes), L'Aquila (37), Pescara (39) and Teramo (38). The wine (also called Superiore) must contain at least 85% Montepulciano, the rest can be other authorised varieties. If the grapes come from classified vineyards, Vigna can be indicated followed by the vineyard name.

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
