We have been making our Cerausolo di Vittoria for many years now and have always known that it is a unique, characterful quality wine.
We therefore very much welcomed the news in 2005 that Cerasuolo di Vittoria had become Sicily’s first Dominazione Origine Controllata e Garantita wine -the highest stamp of quality that can be given to an Italian wine. As a blend of Vittoria’s Frappato grape variety and SIcily’s Nero d’Avola, Cerasuolo di Vittoria could not be more typical of our terroir. With Santa Tresa Cerasuolo di Vittoria, we have gone some way to help revive this historically important style of wine and to introduce a modern interpretation of it to wine drinkers around the world.
Wine maker’s tasting notes
The bouquet is of dark, ripe berries. The palate is soft, with well-rounded fruit, reminiscent of blackberries and damsons. This is an elegant wine, with a certain finesse and a lovely long finish.
Food Pairing Suggestions
We have a local dish “Pasta alla Norma”, which goes perfectly with Cerasuolo. It’s a tomato sauce, with aubergines fried in olive oil, all mixed together with some ricotta cheese. Cerasuolo is delicious served slightly chilled and we drink it with with meaty fish such as tuna and sword fish.
