Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico

This wine is made from vineyards standing in the area of the town of Vittoria (south western Sicily) on calcareous soil. Cerasuolo di Vittoria is the only DOCG appellation in Sicily.  The DOCG status was awarded in 2005. This wine dates back to 1606 when the town of Vittoria was founded by Vittoria Colonna Henriques, daughter of the viceroy of Sicily. The name “Cerasuolo” is due to the colour of the wine (“cerasa” means cherry in Sicilian dialect) which is cherry red.
