Rating
 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. Aged for four months in 100% stainless steel prior to bottling in mid-February.

Technical notes

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.
