Rating
 Wine Advocate 90 points (Jun 2011)
The 2009 Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico Dorilli is 70% Nero d’Avola and 30% Frappato that spent 12 months in 500-liter French oak barrels. It is a dynamic, poised wine loaded with black cherries, hard candy, flowers and spices. The French oak adds volume and breadth in this beautiful Sicilian red. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017.

Wine maker notes
Grapes for this noble wine come from carefully selected vines surrounding the unique Dorilli estate, named after the nearby river Dorilli. A blend of 70% Nero d’Avola and 30% Frappato, the wine is ruby red with hints of violet. Aromas of ripe cherry, strawberries, chestnut honey and prickly pear give away to a soft and balanced palate with slight fine tannins.

Food pairing
A versatile wine, ideal with tuna, lamb and medium-aged cheeses.
