Planeta Cerasuolo di Vittoria 750ML 2007     
Sku: 8841

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

Planeta’s Cerasuolo di Vittoria (a blend of Frappato and Nero d’Avola that recently became the first Sicilian wine to earn a prestigious DOCG designation) offers beautiful integrity of fruit followed by simple berry and spice nuances. It ends with crisp freshness and cheerful flavors of raspberry and marzipan. — M.L.

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.
