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.
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.
