Notes From The Winemaker:
Our Cerasuolo di Vittoria is born in the beautiful countryside of Dorilli, between the sea and the Iblei mountains. The name of the only DOCG in Sicily is derived from "Cerasa", cherry in Sicilian dialect. It is produced from the indigenous varieties Nero d'Avola and Frappato. A unique wine, recognisable and unforgettable for its youthful flavours and aromas of cherry, strawberry and pomegranate, due to the characteristics of the soil and the climate where the vines are cultivated.A wine like few others, uniting tradition and delight.

Intense ruby red with pink hues. The bouquet is typical of wines produced in the Vittoria area. It is fruity, reminiscent of red berries, strawberries, cherries, figs, ginger and fruit drops. Very distinctive, this is the wine that best highlights the characteristics of the terroir. On the palate, it is supple, vibrant and wonderfully fresh, with a long finish.


Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - James Suckling:
"Delicious crushed raspberry and bitter lemon follow through to a medium body, juicy fruit and a tangy finish. Drink or hold." - 19 Apr, 2019

90 Points & #83 Top 100 Wines of 2019 - Wine Spectator:

"This medium-bodied red is balanced and fresh, with light, taut tannins and a well-knit mix of wild strawberry and raspberry, dried thyme, singed orange peel and spicy mineral flavors. Drink now through 2023. 8,000 cases made, 4,000 cases imported." —AN
