RED WINE CERASUOLO DI VITTORIA PLANETA 2020 DESCRIPTION

The ancient Romans, in wine matters, have always known a lot, and as well as the "granary of Rome", Sicily has also always been the wine cellar. This fact is evidenced by the amphorae found in Pompeii with the abbreviations indicating the origin of the wine "Mesopotamium", a fertile plain in Sicily, precisely corresponding to the production area of Cerasuolo di Vittoria. The Cerasuolo di Vittoria, whose name derives from "Cerasa" which means cherry in Sicilian dialect, is the first and only DOCG in Sicily, made in 2005. A unique wine produced in the beautiful countryside of Dorilli between the sea and the mountains Iblei. Extraordinary wine recognizable and memorable for his youthful tastes and aromas of cherry, strawberry and pomegranate due to the peculiarities of soil and climate in which grapes are grown Nero d'Avola and Frappato. A very special wine, a wine must-try.

Colour Intense ruby red with shades of pink

Scent Typical of wines from Victoria and its terroir: small red fruits, strawberry, cherry, pomegranate, prickly pear, rose and fruit candies
