Planeta Cerasuolo di Vittoria 2012

Planeta Cerasuolo di Vittoria 750ml 2012       
Sku: 14955

This delightful wine is named for its remarkable color as cerasuolo means ”cherry red” in Italian. Made from two local grapes, the Frappato imparts ripe berry flavors and freshness, while the Nero d’Avola lends a supple tannic structure, richness and intensity.

Tasting notes
Color - Intense ruby red with pink hues Bouquet - Typical of wines produced in the Vittoria area. Fruity, reminiscent of red berries, strawberries, cherries, figs, ginger and fruit drops. Very distinctive, this is the wine that best highlights the characteristics of the terroir Taste - Supple, vibrant and wonderfully fresh, with a long finish

 Wine Advocate 87 points (May 2014)
A 60-40 blend of Nero d’Avola and Frappato, the 2012 Cerasuolo di Vittoria is colored by soft fruit aromas, bitter almond and layers of chalky earth or talc powder. The ripe cherry fruit at the back gives it momentum and staying power in the mouth. Drink 2014-2016.
 Wine Spectator 88 points (Jun 15 2014)
Light-bodied, with a silky palate of herb, plum, smoke, floral and red licorice notes that linger on the juicy finish. Drink now through 2017. 6,916 cases made. AN

Wine maker notes
The grapes are de-stemmed and crushed; extraction on skins conducted, with 8 days of maceration. After racking, malolactic fermentation takes place in steel tanks.

Technical notes
60% Nero d’Avola, 40% Frappato (a local grape variety)

Food pairing
A versatile wine, excellent with first and second courses. Ideal with soups, broiled shellfish, lamb and medium-aged cheeses. Served cool in the summer, it makes a refreshing aperitif.
