About Planeta Cerasuolo di Vittoria D.O.C.G. 2011

Our Cerasuolo di Vittoria is born in the beautiful countryside of Dorilli, between the sea and the Iblei mountains. The name of the only DOCG in Sicily is derived from "Cerasa", cherry in Sicilian dialect. It is produced from the indigenous varieties Nero d'Avola and Frappato. A unique wine, recognisable and unforgettable for its youthful flavours and aromas of cherry, strawberry and pomegranate, due to the characteristics of the soil and the climate where the vines are cultivated.A wine like few others, uniting tradition and delight.

Intense ruby red with pink hues. The bouquet is typical of wines produced in the Vittoria area. It is fruity, reminiscent of red berries, strawberries, cherries, figs, ginger and fruit drops. Very distinctive, this is the wine that best highlights the characteristics of the terroir. On the palate, it is supple, vibrant and wonderfully fresh, with a long finish.

Ratings & Reviews

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2010 vintage):
"The 2010 Cerasuolo di Vittoria is 60% Nero d'Avola and 40% Frappato. It is a big, plush Cerasuolo that needs at least a few more months in bottle to come together. Sweet red fruit, spices and flowers are some of the notes that emerge from this tasty Cerasuolo. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016." - Antonio Galloni (June 2011)

90 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (2009 vintage)
"Light, bright red. The herbal, floral and fruity nose (red berries, sour red cherry) strongly reminded me of frappato. Then more red fruits on the palate, with enticing freshness and a hint of spice. Finishes bright, long and pure. Excellent." - Ian D'Agata (Mar/Apr '11)



About Caveau du Mont July "Le Petillant du Cavet" N.V.

The region is located on the lower slopes of the Jura mountains made of calcareous or siliceous clay. Because of the topography, the vineyard is divided into 10 small parcels where 80 wine producers make Bugey wines. Production includes traditional red, rosé, white, sparkling wines or marc brandy. The Bugey Cerdon area is very small, covering only 150 hectares of vines. Wines from Bugey Cerdon are not A.O.C. wines but V.D.Q.S. (Vin Délimité de Qualité Supérieure). Caveau du Mont July's vineyard measures 4 hectares (9.8 acres) but only 1.8 hectare is under vines. The yield is 72-75 hectoliters/hectare.
