    There are depths of crushed raspberries, pomegranate, roses and peppery herbs to be found in the 2017 Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico. This is silky and pliant in feel, offering ripe red and blue fruits accentuated by sweet spices, as juicy acidity maintains vibrancy. Salty minerals and inner violet florals come forward through the close, along with nuanced tannins that create a classically dry sensation on the elegant finish. This is a total pleasure to taste, but while it’s already drinking beautifully, it will also excel through a number of years of cellaring. T
