Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOCG, the only DOCG appellation in Sicily, reflects the spirit of this beautiful island through a complex yet humble red wine. Feudo Silvestri's expression of Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOCG is spicy with an unrivalled structure. This is matched by a brisk acidity that mellows after a few years in the bottle. On the palate, this wine is full-bodied and dry with notes of cherry and spices. Drink now to 2029.
Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOCG is made with 60% Nero d'Avola and 40% Frappato grapes picked at the end of September. Vinification takes place at controlled temperatures, and the wine is aged for eight months in oak barrels followed by 48 months in the bottle.
Feudo Silvestri, Sicily
Feudo Silvestri was established in 1862 in the countryside surrounding Catania. Hand-picked grapes, low but good quality yields and limited human interventions are the core values at Feudo Silvestri.
Nero d’Avola, also known as Calabrese, is a traditional Italian grape widely planted in Sicily with disputed origins. Although Sicily has the highest world production of Nero d’Avola, it is believed that the grape originated from the neighbouring region of Calabria. Until the late 1900s, Nero d’Avola was mainly used in blends, often outside Italy, to provide structure to lighter wines. At the turn of the century, Sicilian producers underwent a Nero d’Avola renaissance, restoring this grape to its rightful place on the world scene. Full-bodied with high tannins and moderate acidity, Nero d’Avola wines are typically rich with ripe black fruit and cherry flavours. Hints of leather, tobacco and spice are also found in this grape.
Frappato, planted almost exclusively in Sicily and parts of Puglia, is an indigenous Italian variety. Frappato wines are usually light-bodied with low tannins and boast notes of strawberry and herbs. These unique natural characteristics make Frappato perfect for blending with bolder grapes, like Nero d’Avola.
