Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico D.O.C.G.
From Pettineo’s vineyards, all along, come magnificent grapes Nero D’Avola and Frappato that are the components of Cerasuolo di Vittoria. The best grapes are carefully selected one by one with our hands. The extraordinary result of our hard work is a wine which is red cherry coloured and characterised also by some purple nuances and scents of red berry fruits. It’s a wine with a full bodied and soft taste with a long and persistent aftertaste.
