Valentini remains one of the oldest and greatest names in Italian viniculture for traditional winemaking, with origins dating back to 1650. Wine critic Antonio Galloni commented that they are "one of Italy's most iconic producers". They were first recognized for the quality of their wines in 1868 made by Camillo Valentini. However, the estate was managed by a factor until the 1950s when the first Valentini, Edoardo, was dedicated to the property, and is still managed by the family to this day, by Edoardo's grandson Gabriele. They are most well known for their Valentini Trebbiano d'Abruzzo which is widely considered to be Italy's greatest white wine thanks to the intense, complex and ageworthy style of the wine. Another one of their iconic productions would be the Cerasuolo Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Rose which is considered to be one of the world's best Rosé wines.
The word Cerasuolo means cherry-colored, and while the shades of this rosé style wine vary from producer to producer, it often ends up more red than pink, and sometimes looks dark enough to be mistaken for a light red attributed to the rich pigmentation of the Montepulciano grape when ripe. Often called a “workhorse grape”, wines made from the Montepulciano grape have rarely stood out, only with the exception of wines made by Valentini. His Cerasuolo from Montepulciano always wows with its amazing clarity and precision, combined with harmonious complexity and structure.
