Planeta – Cerasuolo di Vittoria, Sicily, Italy 2007

Just for a moment, let’s pretend that the summer sun is more than just a mere memory. Here’s an extraordinarily fruity Sicilian red that makes for excellent summer drinking – Planeta, Cerasuolo di Vittoria.

The first and only D.O.C.G. in Sicily – Cerasuolo di Vittoria has somewhat of a reputation for standing out from the crowd. With it’s uniquely vibrant colour, perfume and taste.

A classic blend of native Sicilian grapes – Nero d’Avola and Frappato – Cerasuolo di Vittoria positively screams ripe fruit at you from the glass. Waves of glorious cherries fill your nose and continue across your tongue, complimented by undertones of figs and spices.

Should the sun return – pop a bottle in the fridge for 45 minutes before opening for a beautifully refreshing drop.
