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.

Reticent and not showy, this is good). Pinot styled with good ripeness, close to Burg vilage quality, Gevrey-to-Morey, burgundians would love to have such ripeness every year. Fresh and balanced, high drinking potential.

The nose is all strawberries. Tastes of raspberries, Concord grapes, and prunes. Nice for the price point.

Definitely more on the Nero davola side of Cerasuola di Vittoria. Dark, fuller bodied, murky herbal notes. Great value, but I was expecting more bright cherry goodness.

The Ashanti of wine. Pretty good. Super easy to listen too. I love the single with Ja. I wouldn't buy a case

Served with a wonderful polenta, turkey, and glazed cranberries, the both bitter and acidic characteristics were softened. Not a wine by itself. I would wait 3-5 years before trying again.
