Marc Almert about the Rosato Cerasuolo Le Murate
We all know Montepulciano as a light red wine to go with pizza and pasta. But have you ever tried it as a rosé? It has the typical acidity, the bursting cherry and raspberry fruit, but also many floral notes as well as an enchanting lightness on the palate. With this wine, you can delight anyone who is on a voyage of discovery beyond Œil de Perdrix and Côte de Provence. Elena and Alessandro Nicodemi are guarantors for uncomplicated wines with a high drinking delight - and at fantastic prices. A wine that makes you long for warm summer evenings on terraces, boats and by the poolside...
PS: The Nicodemis not only know how to make wine, their olive oil is also perfect for Mediterranean salads!

Fattoria Nicodemi / Fam. Nicodemi
The name is a source of confusion. Montepulciano is a well-known location in Tuscany, after which this grape is presumably named. But it is not at all grown in Montepulciano itself, where the Sangiovese reigns. The Montepulciano actually has its stronghold in the Abruzzo region, located in central Italy on the Adriatic Sea. It also plays a key role in Rosso Conero and Rosso Piceno in the Marche region. Wines of this variety are dense and dark with flavours of cherry, plum and spices and earthy, robust tannins. The Montepulciano grape loves the sun, which explains why in recent years it has increasingly spread to southern Italy.
Italy – Where wine is a way of life
The Italian wine regions are extremely diverse, and this is made clear in their wines. Established varieties such as Merlot, Syrah, and Sauvignon can be found on just 15 percent of the total vine growing area. The remaining 85 percent is reserved for autochthonous, indigenous varieties. More than 2,000 different grape varieties are grown under diverse conditions and pressed with various techniques into wines that reach the top tier of the international wine market.
