More info

The Cerasuolo di Vittoria is an ancient red wine whose name relates to Vittoria Colonna Henriquez, founder of the city of Vittoria in southern Sicily. She in 1606 launched the extensive cultivation of the vines promising a gift of one hectare of land to each family provided that they accepted to cultivate another hectare for her. The Cerasuolo di Vittoria became D.O.C. in 1973 and D.O.C.G. in 2005.

After fermentation this wine has matured 8 - 12 months in barriques, followed by 18 - 24 months in the bottle.

Colour: Tight ruby red.

Bouquet: At the nose there is a complex bouquet of notes of sweet spices, vanilla, blackberry, currant, pomegranate and blackberry jam. The aromas have a remarkable extraction weight, warm and soft.

Taste: On the palate it shows a really impressive structure for this type of wine. Elegant and strong tannins. Good final persistence.

Longevity 10-20 years.
