2017

In a Nutshell

Cerasuolo di Vittoria is the only DOCG of Sicily.

Tasting Notes

This wine has an intense ruby red colour with brilliant purple hues. On the nose, it has intense fruity aromas, black cherry and plummy notes. On the palate, it opens with delicate flowery flavours and characteristic spicy notes of black pepper, the flavours are supported by a refreshing acidity with fine and well-integrated tannins.

Production Notes

Once at the winery, the grapes were fermented in stainless-steel tanks with maceration on the skins lasting about 10 days at a temperature of 25°- 28°C. After malolactic fermentation, ageing took place in stainless-steel tanks for eight months and then the wine was aged in bottle for at least seven months.

Press Quotes & Awards

Bright deep red. Perfumed aromas of violet, cinnamon and red berries. Then rich, dense and suave but with lively acidity lifting the inner-mouth perfume of the red berry and red cherry flavour. Finishes long and floral. Lovely Cerasuolo di Vittoria with sneaky concentration and real refinement. 92 points.

Ian D`Agata, Sicily: Where Great Wines and Lava Flow, vinous.com, 6th August 2019

Vivid fruit here with crushed strawberries, cherries and lemons, following through to a medium body, firm but light tannins and a crisp finish. 92 points.
