Feudo di Santa Tresa Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico DOCG

From Feudo di Santa Tresa in Sicilia this is one of my favorite blends of 60% Nero d'Avola with 40% Frappato, medium weight with a ruby opacity, violets, raspberry, medium to high acidity, low tannins, probably stainless steel fermentation and hand harvested, slight minerality, white pepper, cherries, long lush finish.

Recommended by Luca at Il Poeta, paired well with a quail risotto, and a delicious artichoke flan with prosciutto over mashed potato, created by that culinary genius, Mario.
