Wine Advocate 88 points - The 2011 Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico is 60-40 Nero d?Avola and Frappato, aged 12 months in oak. The quality of the fruit is very dried, to the point of being a fault. Sun-dried cherries, raspberry roll-up candy and creme de cassis emerge in unison. The wine shows moderate depth and layering. A pretty dose of acidity helps to render more vibrancy to the mouthfeel. Drink 2014-2019. (May 2014)
The Cerasuolo di Vittoria is a deep ruby red color. It has aromas of dried cherry, chocolate, smoke, herb and spice. It gains some licorice notes with time in the glass. Soft round fruity medium bodied palate with a good dose of acidity. The wines gives off dried cherry, truffle and smoky flavors in the mouth. Long finish.
