Aromas of sour red cherry, raspberry, sage, rosemary and minerals on the enticing nose. Then multilayered, deep and complex, with mouthcoating but vibrant flavors of small red berries, herbs and minerals. Finishes very long and suave with hints of orange zest and underbrush. Extremely serious, ageworthy Rosato, a real Cerausolo. -- Ian D'Agata collapse

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, April 2020
This terrific wine shows so much energy and electricity from the first sip forward. Forest berry and wild rose are followed by tangy herbs and some very inviting white licorice. The color of the Valentini 2016 Cerasuolo... expand This terrific wine shows so much energy and electricity from the first sip forward. Forest berry and wild rose are followed by tangy herbs and some very inviting white licorice. The color of the Valentini 2016 Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo is slightly lighter and more delicate compared to the 2017, and this wine delivers interesting camphor ash and savory white pepper. It not easy to contextualize or even describe the bouquet, given its immense intensity and brilliantly unique profile. Don't pair this one-of-a-kind Rosato with anything except some artisanal crackers and mild goat cheese, and just breathe in its stunning bouquet. - Monica Larner collapse
