Very floral and fresh with strawberry and cherry. Full body, very fine tannins and a crisp and bright finish.
Nero d’Avola and Frappato grown in red, sandy soils coexist harmoniously in this smooth and polished wine, with notes of spice and licorice accenting its red cherry fruit. The flavors are rich and concentrated, lifted by light floral scents. This would make a delicious companion for roasted leg of lamb.
Deep ruby-red. Spicy and leafy nuances complicate aromas and flavors of ripe red and black cherry, coffee and cocoa. Polished on the palate, with bright, harmonious acidity and smooth tannins providing solid supporting backbone. The long finish shows a peppery edge. (ID)
The 2012 Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico is composed of 60% Nero d'Avola and 40% Frappato. This is a well composed and refreshing red wine that reveals bright berry nuances that are focused and well proportioned. The hearty and fleshy Nero d'Avola side of the wine makes a perfect partner to the graceful and feminine Frappato side. That symmetry is also evident in the mouth where the wine imparts silky tannins and a dry finish. (ML)
Aromas of ripe berry, Mediterranean herb, menthol and eucalyptus lead the nose. The medium-bodied palate is already somewhat evolved offering blackberry extract, mature black cherry, licorice, spice and espresso alongside polished tannins. It closes on a note of bitter walnut. (KO)
