About the Region: Cerasuolo di Vittoria was the first Sicilian red wine to win DOC recognition in 2005. Its roots are very ancient. To trace its production, one must go back to the year 1600 when the city of Vittoria was founded by Vittoria Colonna, who promised two hectares of land to the first 75 colonists on the condition that each plant a vineyard. This contributed to starting the wine business that has been very active to this day.

The estate's Cerasuolo di Vittoria is made of a blend of seventy percent Nero d'Avola and thirty percent Frappato. This is a full-bodied and complex wine, combining the dark spice notes of Nero d'Avola with the high-toned floral aspects of the Frappato. This harmonious blend displays supple tannins and sound acids to keep the wine fresh and bouncy on the palate.
