Fondo Filara Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico DOCG
Cantine Nicosia's Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico DOCG is a red wine of the "Fondo Filara" line, that includes single-vineyard wines produced from the finest Sicilian grapes coming from the most suitable areas for their cultivation, from Etna, Vittoria, to eastern and western Sicily. This wine is obtained from native 60% Nero d'Avola and 40% Frappato grapes. The harvest is carried out manually and grapes are subjected to maceration and fermentation at a controlled temperature for about 10-15 days of 24-26 °C. Aging takes place mainly in steel, followed by a passage in barrique for 5-6 months and at least 6 months in the bottle.
The intensity of Nero d'Avola and the freshness of Frappato give life to Cerasuolo di Vittoria, a classic of south-eastern Sicily winemaking tradition. This version proposed by Cantine Nicosia offers an intense red wine, with a rich aromatic profile made of floral notes and notes of red fruit. Warm, round and harmonious tasting, that creates a perfect balance between persistence and drinkability. We suggest serving it at a temperature of 16-18 °C.
