Staff Pick Notes

Roberto Fracassa and Alessandro Massacesi founded DeSterlich in 2017. Roberto is from a family well-known for their cured meats (Salumeria Fracassa) They now run the small biodynamic farm nestled between the Adriatic Sea and the Gran Sasso Mountain chain, making elegant and expressive wines with clarity and verve. “Cerasuolo” is a traditional style of rose wine, a couple of shades darker than the Provencale counterparts, but even more dynamic when it comes to food. This wine is juicy, crunchy, with salted red fruit notes. Unsurprisingly, this is the perfect wine for a thoughtful antipasto platter.
