For drinking now: 2013 Planeta, Dorilli, Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico


The 2013 Planeta, Dorilli, Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico has benefited from a little bottle age for it is in an accessible state right now.  The wine was raised in oak so think of it as a more robust version of its namesake.  You may grab this good value at MacArthur Beverages.

2013 Planeta, Dorilli, Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico – $16
Imported by Palm Bay International.  This wine is a blend of 70% Nero d’Avola and 30% Frappato fermented in stainless steel then aged for 12 months in oak.  Alcohol ?%.  Aromas of damp soil and smoke are inviting. In the mouth are tangy red and black fruit, juicy acidity, and gentle structure.  There is an ethereal strawberry and cranberry fruit finish with tar and a return touch of smoke.  *** Now – 2020.
