Drink of the Week: Torre dei Beati “Rosa-ea” Cerasuolo 2011

With May around the corner, we’ve got rosé on our minds, especially today’s Drink of the Week—the Cerasuolo rosato from Torre dei Beati. Made entirely from the Montepulciano grape grown organically in Italy’s Abruzzi region, this wine is plump, vibrant and deliciously more concentrated than the pale pink rosés typical of late-summer drinking. It’s that hearty freshness (and flavors of sun-ripened strawberries, tangy pomegranates and fresh cherries) that makes it an ideal season-straddler with enough nuance to entice even devout red-wine drinkers. Pair it with antipasti, fish and a back patio parked in the sun. $16, astorwines.com
