Description

Donnafugata Floramundi Cerasuolo di Vittoria 2017

DONNAFUGATA produces a range of eclectic and consistent wines distinguished by pleasantness and complexity. Every wine is crafted with respect for the environment to represent an innovative and forward thinking Sicily.
Bright red colour with light purple reflections. Black cherry, plum and raspberry stand out in the bouquet, with notes of pink flowers and black pepper. The palate is flashy and round thanks to its well-integrated silky tannins. Juicy and pleasant to drink.
Captivating and refined red that opens a dialogue between 70% Nero d'Avola (king of Sicilian red grape varieties) and 30% Frappato (one of the most ancient Sicilian grape varieties). These come together to create the prestigious denomination of Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOCG. Vinification in stainless steel with maceration on the skins for 10 days at a temperature of 25–28°C. Ageing for 8 months in tank and at least 7 months in bottle. Ageing potential of 4–5 years.
Top tip: Try it chilled at 15°C in medium sized glasses!

Aromas of red berry and culinary spice are front and center on this Nero d'Avola and Frappato blend. The smooth, juicy palate doles out crushed raspberry, mature black cherry, blackberry and white pepper alongside the tannins. Enjoy through 2022.
