Planeta Cerasuolo di Vittorio Dorilli 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Color: Intense ruby red with pink hues Bouquet: Typical of wines produced in the Vittoria area. 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 Taste: Supple, vibrant and wonderfully fresh, with a long finish

Strawberry and strawberry leaf on the nose with a slightly creamy edge and subtle undertones of fur, mineral and a slightly green berry tone. Silky in the mouth with fine balance to the tight mid-palate with dark mineral and fruit notes. There’s a little smoke and anise adding complexity with front-loaded fruit that emerges with time. This needs some time to relax, though the finish is already quite long with sweet spice and herb notes. 89pts

The wine had a rich cherry-red color. ABV was label listed at 13%. On the nose, I had aromas of pomegranate and a variety of red fruits (strawberry and cherry were among them). In general, the aromas were the typical Cerasuolo di Vittoria ones. In the mouth, I had a variety of fruits and some minerals which caused a tickly feeling on my tongue. The finish was a little bit fruity and persistently long. While drinking it, I was always wondering how this wine would taste if I had stored it for a few years.

/ A blend of 60% Nero d’Avola and 40% Frappato aged solely in stainless steel. Deep garnet with aromas of marascino cherry and rose petals- lovely! Mediumfull, this has tasty, fresh fruit, moderate tannins and very good fruit persistence. Very good winemaking- very clean and nicely balanced. One of the best examples of this wine.

Cerasuolo di Vittoria 2009 - 4 stars, Restaurant Wine/ A supple, intensely fruity wine, with full body, moderate depth, and a smooth, long finish, tasting of strawberry jam, cassis, and red currant. Ready to drink.

Cerasuolo di Vittoria 2007 - 87 Points, Wine Enthusiast/ Planeta’s Cerasuolo di Vittoria (a blend of Frappato and Nero d’Avola that recently became the first Sicilian wine to earn a prestigious DOCG designation) offers beautiful integrity of fruit followed by simple berry and spice nuances. It ends with crisp freshness and cheerful flavors of raspberry and marzipan.

Cerasuolo di Vittoria 2007 - Top Pick, Diversion Magazine/ Here’s a velvety, light, juicy, flat-out delightful red from Sicily. The name “cerasuolo” refers to cherries—in this case a cherry-red color, as well as a whiff of red cherry along with an unmistakable scent of ripe strawberries. Composed of two indigenous Sicilian red grapes, nero d’Avola and frappato, this wine is meant to be served slightly cool and accompanied by anything from salmon to a slice of pâté to a bowl of good potato chips.

Cerasuolo di Vittoria 2007/ The 2007 Cerasuolo di Vittoria is an intensely perfumed red that brings together Nero d’Avola and Frappato, two of Sicily’s indigenous varieties. It is a rich, weighty wine endowed with generous fruit. Sweet, candied notes ring out on the long finish. Listed among “Italy’s Finest Wine Values.”

Cerasuolo di Vittoria 2009 - 90 points, International Wine Cellar/ 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.

Cerasuolo di Vittoria 2014 - 91 Points, Vinous/ Deep red. Sweet, spicy aromas of red cherry, licorice, coffee and marzipan, complicated by minerals and tobacco. At once plump and juicy, sweet and poised, conveying an impressive delicacy to its floral red fruit and stone flavors. The seductive floral tones repeat on the silky finish. A knockout Cerasuolo di Vittoria.
