Our Cerasuolo di Vittoria is produced from the countryside around Dorilli, between the sea and the Iblean mountains, the area of Sicilian food par excellence. The name of the only Sicilian DOCG derives of 'cerasa', cherry in Sicilian dialect. The wine is produced from the indigenous varieties Nero d'Avola and Frappato. A unique wine, recognizable and unforgettable; aromas of cherry, strawberry and pomegranate, fruits of the particular soils and climate where the grapes are cultivated also. A wine in the wake of an ancient tradition, but with a youthful manner like no other Sicilian red wine.

Lightly toasty on the nose, less so on the palate, with a pure beam of raspberry coulis fruit flavors layered with a minerally underpinning of smoke and graphite, plus rich notes of fig cake, wild sage, ground coffee and red licorice. A fresh, classy version, with lightly chalky tannins emerging to firm the finish. Nero d'Avola and Frappato. Drink now through 2027. 6,650 cases made, 1,415 cases imported.

The 2020 Cerasuolo di Vittoria is dark and smoky, with black currants and crushed blueberries o!set by a hint of animal musk. This is a soft and pure yet energetic expression, with a mix of tart wild berries and sour citrus tones adding tension. It tapers o! long and floral, with a pleasant inner sweetness complicated by a staining of salty minerals. This is so incredibly fresh. The 2020 Cerasuolo di Vittoria is a blend of 60% Nero d'Avola and 40% Frappato.

Cerasuolo di Vittoria invariably offers the best of all worlds and this Planeta bottling is no exception, with vanilla, soil and tanned leather on the nose, alongside cigar box and dried cherries. The palate creates an exciting fruity contrast with the savory nose, offering metallic, meaty notes with red fruit leather and freeze dried strawberries.
