Valentini Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo, Italy 2017
There may have been no greater cult figure in Italian wine than the late Edoardo Valentini, the mysterious producer of Italy’s greatest white, the mythic Valentini Trebbiano d’Abruzzo. Edoardo passed away in 2006 after making this amazing wine for fifty vintages. But his son Francesco, hasn’t missed a beat, fashioning epic wines since his first solo vintage in 2007. Safe to say that this one of the hardest rosés to find, made in a way that only Edoardo knows, as he's very secretive about his methods.
