Cerasuolo di Vittoria Organic Nero d'Avola Frappato 2019 - Gulfi


Cerasuolo di Vittoria Organic Nero d'Avola Frappato 2019


90 points, “The 2019 Cerasuolo di Vittoria is lifted, presenting a pure display of sweet violets, black cherries and hints of wet stone. It impresses further with silky textures that envelop the palate in bright red and blue fruits, along with a refreshing wave of juicy acidity. Hints of spiced orange and inner florals linger long through the lightly structured finale. This is an equal-parts blend of Nero d'Avola and Frappato that is aimed at immediate satisfaction, but in a nicely balanced style.” – Antonio Galloni’s Vinous Media

The combination of Nero d’Avola and Frappato is a Sicilian classic. The lighter Frappato adds fruit and floral freshness to the dark, bold and full-bodied Nero d’Avola. In the hands of “one of Italy’s top wine estates” (according to Italian wine expert Ian D’Agata), it’s a revelation. 

The grapes come from three vineyards in Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOCG and the lighter, unoaked style make it a fine choice for pairing with homemade pizza, pasta sauces made with fresh tomatoes, charcuterie, wild mushrooms or Catalan pa amb tomàquet. One of the ‘Slow Wine’ movement’s all-time classics.

Gulfi is one of Sicily’s most cherished, award winning and iconic wineries. Their vineyards stretch from Sicily’s extreme south-eastern tip, all the way up the volcanic slopes of Mount Etna. Raffaele Catania began making wines in 1970s, and Gulfi has passed through two more generations of the family since. Committed to sustainability and minimal intervention, their certified-organic vines are trained like little trees, this helps them to cope with the extreme conditions, shading themselves and preventing them from needing irrigating. Their consulting winemaker, Savlo Foti, has probably forgotten more about Sicilian wine than most other know. Together, they create wines that tell the true story of Sicily – one of the world’s most exciting wine regions.
