Planeta Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico Dorilli 2018
From the countryside of Dorilli, between the sea and the Iblean mountains, known as the centre of excellence for Sicilian food, comes our Cerasuolo di Vittoria. The name of the only DOCG in Sicily comes from ‘Cerasa’, which means cherry in Sicilian dialect. It is produced from the indigenous varieties Nero d’Avola and Frappato. A unique wine, recognisable and unforgettable for its youthful flavours and aromas of cherry, strawberry and pomegranate, due to the particular soil and climate in which the grapes are cultivated. A wine which like few others combines tradition and delicious wine.

Colour

Bright, medium ruby.

Bouquet

Beautiful nose with fresh tones, which recall sensations of red rose, raspberry, talc, pink grapefruit, aromatic herbs.

Flavour

On the palate, the wine reflects its olfactory impressions of black pepper mixed with carob and sweet cherries. Quick on the palate with a tasty, rounded finish with hints of mulberry.

Pairing

Perfect with a slice of seared tuna, chopped mushrooms, or feathered game, its harmony with pizza is a surprise throughout the year.
