Winemaker Notes

This wine shows a light ruby red color and nuances of deep pink, moderate transparency. The nose reveals intense, clean and pleasing aromas of cherry, strawberry, raspberry, almond, blackberry, peach, plum and rose. In the mouth it has good correspondence to the nose, a pleasing crisp attack however well balanced by alcohol, intense flavors, agreeable. The finish is persistent with flavors of raspberry, strawberry and peach.

Critical Acclaim

RP 90
The Wine Advocate

The 2008 Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Cerasuolo from Cataldi Madonna is one of the more overt, fruit-driven roses of the vintage. Medium in body, the wine possesses gorgeous depth and richness, with a long, polished close. This relatively intense rose should pair beautifully with a wide range of foods. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2010.

Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as [Rutherford’s] famous dust or [Stags Leap District's] tart cherry flavors.
