Vittoria DOC

Le Bacche Nere

The truest taste of Sicily

Nero d’Avola is undoubtedly the king of Sicilian red wines and in Vittoria area it assumes the unique characteristics of the DOP related to the nature of the loose calcareous soil. Considered in the past a blending wine, given its high alcohol content, over the years it has carved out a space of its own in the Italian and international wine scene thanks to its versatility, its qualities of elegance and unique character. In our production area it is often vinified together with frappato to create the only DOCG of Sicily, the Cerasuolo di Vittoria, but here we offer it vinified in purity to appreciate all its unique qualities of full bodied wine enhanced by the elegance tipical of the DOC Vittoria terroir.

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 BC – 8 BC)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.

OmeroPoet
