Sabuci Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico Cortese - 1320, 2017

Italy

Grape Variety

Frappato

Cerasuolo di Vittoria is the only DOCG on the island of Sicily. The Cortese estate located in the hamlet of Sabuci is a prime spot for growing Nero d’Avola and Frappato grapes to produce Cerasuolo di Vittoria. The 2017 has dark fruits with fresh blackcurrant aromas. It is supple, medium bodied with a good juicy mid-palate and a long bitter cherry finish. 70% of the blend is Nero d’Avola fermented in open top barrels. 30% is Frappato grapes fermented in terracotta amphorae. Used by the ancient Greeks, the natural porosity of terracotta allows a slow exchange of oxygen during the fermentation and the wine is left on skins for twelve months. The two varieties were subsequently blended together and matured in oak botti.
