Suber Nero d'Avola Blend

#Cerasuolo blend with a nice dollop of Alicante Bouschet (aka Grenache) that adds what these wines are missing in terms of acidity, that i believe makes it a more refined, structured, and balanced wine with all of the same juicy dark red fruits and rustic feel of these wines - no surprises here since it’s part of the #salvofoti #ivigneri consortium. Worth a shot if you see it, especially with some age. — 2 years ago

Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico Frappato Nero d'Avola 2012

Nero d'Avola and Frappato in roughly equal measure aged in clay amphora. Cherry as the name indicates indeed, as well as strawberry immediately and currants with 2 or so hours of air. A lot of floral notes up front reminded me of Barolo, especially with the mineral notes and the silky, but firm tannins. This is the best wine in a while for me from Sicily not from Mt. Etna. I am looking forward to trying more from COS and Occhipinti who is the "O" in #COS. #sicily #frappato #cerasuolo #docg #amphora — 4 years ago

Cerasuolo di Vittoria Nero d'Avola-Frappato Blend 2014

Another great value from Sicily ($15). Cerasuolo di Vittoria which literally translates to cherry from Vittoria and is a DOCG required blend of Nero di Avola (50-70%) and the amazing Frappato. Usually a brighter similarity to an actual red cherry, this version is a deeper expression of sappy dark red bing cherry, black raspberry with juicy plum, some licorice spice and a cut of volcanic minerality.
