An organic blend of 60% Nero d'Avola and 40% Frappato, the 2020 Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico has a wild side with punchy aromas of cherry, cola, crushed stone and mountain herb. These elements come together seamlessly, giving this wine a good sense of vertical lift and energy. This is a benchmark expression of this Sicilian appellation.
The colour is intense ruby, the nose evokes red fruits, wild strawberries and raspberries, and floral notes, peony and roses. The palate offers fleshy, greedy and very ripe fruit, of a very good intensity, with a velvety and supple texture, with a nice density in the mid-palate. The tannins are very fine, well integrated, already melted. 
The 2016 Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico is a very nice wine that shows a smooth texture and a delicate approach that grows in intensity. There are small-berry aromas with cassis, wild raspberry and dried blueberry, which would spruce up any pasta like a Sicilian pasta alla Norma. A blend of 40% Frappato and 60% Nero d'Avola aged in oak barrels for 12 months, the wine is delicate and smooth, with tiny steps that go the long haul. The tannins are well integrated and give the wine a firm, upstanding backbone. Some 83,000 bottles were made.
This wine is a blend of 60% Nero d’Avola and 40% Frappato, aged in oak for 12 months. The 2015 Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico is a bright, almost glossy expression that delivers pure and elegant fruit. This estate stands out for the elegant and finessed approach bestowed on these two unruly and spirited Sicilian native varieties. COS shows a deft hand in the cellar. This mid-weight red wine is brilliant, buoyant, fresh and lasting.

White wines from Sicily are also gaining popularity, with Grillo being the most commonly used grape variety. These wines are known for their crisp acidity and citrus flavors, such as lemon and grapefruit.

In addition to wine, Sicily is also known for its production of Marsala, a fortified wine made from a blend of white grapes. This wine is aged for a minimum of one year and has a rich, caramel-like flavor.
