Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"An elegant premium wine from the southern coast of Sicily, near Vittoria. While the cheaper red-labelled Cerasuolo is the standard regional wine, this Dorilli label is a special Cerasuolo di Vittoia Classico DOCG — "Classico" meaning the best vineyards from a delimited subzone and also extra aging before release (12 month of which were in classy oak). The style's wonderful brightness and cherry-spice are retained but deepened here by a greater proportion of Nero D'Avola, while the bright acidity is brought to earth by nice ripe, grainy tannins. A top wine in a refined and quite cutting style, this will shine after a good decant before dinner, or a spell in the cellar."


91/100 Wine Enthusiast (2017 Vintage)
"A blend of Nero d'Avola and Frappato, this opens with aromas of black-skinned berry, carob and Mediterranean brush. The savoury, balanced palate offers black cherry, orange zest, blackberry jam and white pepper alongside polished tannins."

92/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Monica Larner (2016 vintage)
"Here's a terrific lean to mid-weight red wine from Sicily. The 2016 Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico Dorilli is a vibrant and lively blend of 70% Nero d'Avola and 30% Frappato that burst from the glass with immediate appeal. I love the energy you get from this easy-drinking red. Drink 2018 – 2022."


92/100 Ian D'Agata, Vinous (2016 Vintage)
"Bright red. Flowers, red cherry and licorice on the nose; I especially like the fact that you can actually smell here the contribution of both the Frappato and the Nero d’Avola. Then fresh and very floral, with red cherry fruit strongly marked by notes of lavender and underbrush. Finishes long and spicy, with a pretty undertone of floral nuances that are currently pushed into the background. A little less luscious and forward than some past Dorilli vintages, time will help this lovely wine develop more nuance and grace. Drink 2021 – 2025."


90/100 Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2015 Vintage)
"The Planeta 2015 Cerasuolo di Vittoria is a fresh and fragrant red wine that is a perfect choice if you are looking for a red wine in the summer. This wine offers a clean and feminine bouquet with blue flower aromas that are followed by wild cherry and dried raspberry. It offers a slim and streamlined style that hits all the right buttons if you are looking for a pairing partner to seafood or vegetarian dishes. Drink 2016 – 2020".

The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.
