"Sabbie di Sutta" Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOCG 2019 - Nicosia

In Sicily there is only one DOCG. This is the case of Cerasuolo di Vittoria, a wine of great value that is produced in the province of Ragusa. The base is Frappato and Nero d'Avola. Two of the most beloved autochthonous vines of the great island in the middle of the Mediterranean. Sabbie di Sutta is indeed a Cerasuolo di Vittoria, proposed by Cantine Nicosia. Its blend includes a majority share of Nero d'Avola grapes, about 60%, and Frappato for the remainder. Hand harvesting and super careful vinification, for the refinement we opt for a double solution. In fact, it takes place mainly in steel, even if a brief passage in tonneaux is included. Just enough to give the right complexity, without distorting the goodness of the initial fruit. In the glass it has a beautiful bright red colour, with intense aromas reminiscent of ripe red fruit and floral notes. Full, soft and harmonious in the mouth. It is a perfect wine to accompany a lunch or dinner with friends. Tasty first courses and tasty meats are the right combination for this red wine of the territory.

Who knows if in 1898, when Francesco Nicosia, great-grandfather of the current owner, decided to open his first wine shop in Trecastagni, he already knew that Etna would one day become the very symbol of quality wine in Sicily. He probably hoped so. After all, even then the Etnean wine was known and appreciated throughout Europe for its mineral strength and its volcanic personality. From those fortunate beginnings, to the current management the path has been long but consistent. Today the company is entrusted to the hands of Carmelo Nicosia who has staked everything on the redevelopment of the company, investing in the expansion and renovation of vineyards, as well as in the construction of a modern processing cellar. Today Cantine Nicosia is a dynamic, modern and efficient company, able to look to the future in full respect of tradition, thanks to a young but well-trained staff. Native grape varieties and international varieties well adapted to the climate of Sicily, coexist to give life to wines of great personality, produced in full respect of the environment. The headquarters of the winery have remained in Trecastagni, while most of the company's vineyards are located not far away, at the foot of Monte Gorna, one of Etna's many extinct craters. The company also owns vast tracts of land in Vittoria, in the Ragusano area, where Cerasuolo DOCG is produced, and directly manages large expanses of vineyards in the rest of Sicily.
