Tonight is Saturday night and I have opened the 2015 Planeta Cerasuolo Di Vittoria - Sicilia. Made up of 60% Nero D' Avola and 40% Frappato. Have been wanting to try more wine from Sicily. I have been hearing a lot of good things coming from this area.
The nose is very aromatic with red fruit, dried strawberries, dried raspberries, cherry cola, balsamic, floral notes, spice and dried herbs.
On the palate I get red berries, wild cherry, strawberry, plum, ginger, spice, herbs and dusty soil.
This wine is medium supple bodied with medium + acidity and medium + sandy tannins that lead to a long vibrant lasting finish. Sicilian wines are showing real well and I will have to try more. The weekend is going well and I hope everyone are enjoying themselves. Stay safe continued prosperity. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 12 days ago

First word that comes to mind- Pure enjoyment. Over turned soil with bramble and oak on nose. Taste; Front raspberry tamed by grip of rose + flash of saddle leather tannins. The finish a delightful sour cranberry cleanse .
I’m sure there is more to find with this wine depending on what you are accompanying it with. Worth a do over🍷 — 11 days ago

Love this wine! Medium bodied, smooth and easy to drink. Slightly fruity of tart cherry/cranberry, but not too sweet. Recommended by the urban grape in Boston - would buy again! — 19 days ago
