Dark red and black fruits cavort with spice, licorice, earth, smoke and cigar wrapper in this stunning, velvety wine. Elegant and fresh yet structured and replete with chewy tannins, the Cerasuolo Di Vittoria offers complexity, structure, a seductive mouth-feel, and breathtaking balance. A blend of Frappato and Nero d’Avola it’s a rich, intense, age-worthy and finessed wine. While many Sicilian wines need food to balance their acidity and tannins, this one does not, making it a perfect party or dinner party wine.
