When Francesco Saverio Russo, a wine blogger, contacted us in November to ask us our interest in attending The Only Wine Festival with real pleasure, we accepted the invitation, but we certainly didn’t think it would have given us so much satisfaction and surprises!
In a splendid location like Città di Castello (PG) we met enthusiasts, professionals, journalists… and was very interesting to mee how they approach the world of Rosé Wine with curiosity and interest.
It is interesting to be able to taste the different expressions “in pink” of the producers present, listen to the descriptions of the numerous winemaking techniques and discover how many nuances there may be behind the common way of calling the “Rosé Wine”.
Motivated by the enthusiasm of the initiative, our reality presented itself with 3 different labels: the Di Sipio Rosè, a blend of Pinot Nero and Montepulciano grapes, the Di Sipio Brut Rosé, Classic Method from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, Di Sipio Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo Dop in two different vintages: 2016 and 2018 which is being refined in the bottle.
A pleasure and a satisfaction to be able to take part in the Masterclasses organized by the Festival e to receive the award for best rosé wine, just with the Di Sipio Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo Dop 2016, our big bet.
Already during Vinitaly we had the opportunity to confirm that something in the air was changing… and that our initiative, for some arduous and reckless, of wanting to make long-lived Cerasuolo today, after more than 13 years of work, was starting to do space, gathering followers and supporters… and it was really yet another incentive to continue on this journey, this event, its recognition and the valuable feedback of the participants.
Thanks to the organization of The Only Wine Festival and to Francesco Saverio Russo who involved us.
We look forward to seeing you in Abruzzo or even before, at Vinexpo in Bordeaux, if you were present !!!601/5000especially to receive the award for best rosé wine, just with the Di Sipio Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo Dop 2016, our big bet.

Back home after the last Vinitaly, is always a pleasure, to say Thank you to the people who came to visit us and above all to meet.
Happy to have obtained an important recognition, like that of the 90 points to our Pecorino Igp Terre di Chieti BIO 2018 assigned to us by 5Stars, also this year our greatest satisfaction was to present our old vintages. At the stand available for tasting, the Colline Teatine Bianco IGP 2006, the Riesling Terra from Chieti PGI 2012, the Montepulciano d’Abruzzo on 2009… and then the Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo Dop 2008 present and presented during a vertical organized by the Consorzio di Tutela Vini d’Abruzzo, led by Gambero Rosso journalists alongside various brands, including the famous Valentini.
An indescribable emotion to open after 10 years a bottle of rosé from Montepulciano grapes fermented in barrique with those hints of caramel, toasting, light hints of fruit in spirit and spices. Certainly a label to be purged sparingly, selecting the company… but really a “trip” back in time… remembering where we started to get to today.
An important Vinitaly during which we have officially presented to the Italian market, as well as internationally, our organic line, uncorked Magnum and toasted with bubbles of over 48 months on the yeasts that have confirmed us, thanks to the many feedbacks that wait time rewards and Quality also.
Animated by the results and loads of the new relationships undertaken, we are approaching the next appointment: we are waiting for you at Vinexpo in Bordeaux, Hall 1 CD90.
“Extinction is the rule. Survival is the exception”
(Carl Sagan)… if we talk about common rosé… but if we tasted more than 10 years of Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo DOP?

Few days to the Vinitaly, in addition to remembering our location, Hall12, Stand F2, (very close to the entrance of Re Teodorico), we suggest you some ideas to take advantage of your stay in Verona for visit some lovely places or join some of the side events.
City made famous by the novel “Romeo and Juliet”, the delightful Venetian town, on the occasion of the Bacchus nectar fair it is colored with labels displayed in every showcase and comes alive with demonstrations in the square and along its streets.
Just visit the website http://www.vinitalyandthecity.com to read about the numerous initiatives outside the Veronafiere exhibition halls.
If within the extended areas of the fair, producers, consortia and operators of the sector work every day to organize tastings, verticals, insights, let’s not forget the beauty of some of the archtectonic places that can be easily reached on foot and can be visited in a short time.
With pleasure we share a link https://luoghidavedere.it/luoghi-da-vedere-in-italia/veneto/route-per-visitare-verona-in-1-giorno_1801 that can be useful to those who want to combine a business moment with a few hours as a tourist… so as not to forget the opportunity to carve out moments of gastronomic relaxation in some of the numerous restaurants that offer typical dishes such as “Meat boiled with perà sauce”, “Risi e bisi” , the “Baccalà alla vicentina” … maybe paired with some extra-regional wine… from Abruzzo ?!
