93 Wine Advocate – 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.

91 Vinous – Deep red. Spicy nuances to the bright red cherry and floral perfume. Then fresh but dense with stony nuances to the herb and red/dark fruit flavors. Finishes long with tarry elements.
