Pure expression of the territory

The name Cerasuolo di Vittoria, a wine made from Frappato and Nero d’Avola grapes, comes from the dialectal form “Cerasa” that literally translates the word cherry, typical red fruit present among the organoleptic qualities of this wine in D.O.C.G. aMarAnto can also add on the label the term “Classic” since the grapevineyards are cultivated in the most historical area of the Designation of Origin. This wine was obtained after a careful selection of the best grapes of Nero d’Avola and Frappato grown exclusively in the grapevineyards owned within our estate in Contrada Serra D’Elia in the Municipality of Vittoria (Ragusa). It is a pleasantly elegant wine that goes very well with mostly of first and second courses of the Sicilian tradition.

Wine Aphorisms

There is no one who knows the secret of the future.
What you need is wine, love and rest as you like.

Omar Ḫayyām (1048 – 1131)Mathematician, astronomer, poet and philosopher

No poem written by water drinkers can please or live long. Ever since Bacchus enlisted poets among his Satyrs and Faunii, the sweet Muses always taste of wine in the morning.

Quinto Orazio Flacco (65 a.C. – 8 a.C.)Poet

Mad wine could push even the very wise man to sing a song, and laugh with pleasure, and make him up to dance, and let slip a few words that was better to keep them inside.
