Pietramore Ceruasuolo

Certified organic and biodynamic. Harvest is by hand, yields are kept low at around 4 tons/hectare. Pressing into the tub. After a short maceration 20% of the juice is bled off (saignée) to become this Cerasuolo. Fermentation occurs naturally in stainless steel at around 24–26 degrees Celsius. Matured in stainless on the fine lees for 6 months. While delicious now, this is an example of why Cerasuolo is considered an age-worthy rosé.

The estate consists of 70 hectares of organically and biodynamically farmed vines. Pietramore demonstrates Abruzzo’s potential for quality wine with a high level of expressiveness. The name reflects Maria’s love and respect for the soil. Pietra= stone. Amore = love. Maria commenced Pietramore with her partner Massimiliano in 2011. The vineyards are nestled in a gorgeous area between the Maiella mountains and the Adriatic Sea. The result is a unique microclimate very diverse soil. Maria works with indigenous varieties but adds personality to the wines through her creative side.
