A spicy and smoky mix of crushed blackberries, pepper-tinged florals and minty herbs makes the 2019 Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico impossible to ignore. It’s round yet lifted and spry, with hints of sour grapefruit that quickly add a mouthwatering tension, as tart wild berries and minerals settle upon the palate. The 2019 tapers off classically dry throughout the long, yet fresh and perfumed finale. - By Eric Guido on June 2022

For this wine the soil structure is divided between clear red sand and dark, medium density earth with good depth. The grapevines planted in dark red soil produce Nero d’Avola, while the vines planted in clear red soil produce Frappato. The Nero d’Avola and Frappato grapes are blended together to obtain the famous Cerasuolo di Vittoria (60% Nero d’Avola and 40% Frappato). This red wine is Valle dell’Acate crown jewel and has earned Italy’s vaunted DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita) status.- winery
