As a native of Long Island, I’m impartial to any and all winemakers cut from the same cloth. But trust and believe it’s even better when the wine is outstanding, origins aside. Southold Farm + Cellar, now located in Gillespie County, Texas, began their winemaking journey in the North Fork, so, naturally, I had to give them a try. The Forgotten Dreams Sangiovese Cerasuolo drinks quicker than cherry Capri Sun, punches the palate with an earthy, wood spice similar to balsam, and has the perfect balance of mouth-watering acidity and well-rounded tannins. Look no further for Spring/Summer glou-glou.

- Chris

If you ever have traveled to Sicily or Montepulciano you may have come across a style of wine called Cerasuolo. Cerasuolo is a relative of Rosato (or Rosé), but we find them to have more depth and interest than typical Rosato. Think of them as a very special place between Red wine and Rosé. This wine has surprised us, it is insanely drinkable, like gulping punch on a hot day on your old school yard, yet to do that means you would miss all the depth and complexity. So choose wisely....  or don't.
