Cerasuolo Classico - Etichetta Nera D.O.C.G.


Black Label - The wine with the rose: in 1984, a scientific research let a woman choose the wine at the table, and gave a rose to her after she chose Cerasuolo di Vittoria. The red rose, moreover, is the symbol of elegance, of the softness of the Frappato and the deep and full structure of Nero d'Avola. The wine of the Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOCG is ruby red in color with aromas of cherry, red berries, plum, and pomegranate. The fresh young fruit character is typical of the Frappato, while the Nero d’Avola shows more tannin and hints of wild herbs.
