Wine Advocate 92 points - All of the best elements of the house style come together in the 2009 Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico. An initial blast of sweet dark cherries leads to leather, spices, tobacco, and dried flowers as this beautifully textured, voluminous wine opens up in the glass. Gracious and refined, the 2009 impresses for its balance and overall sense of harmony. A juicy, floral and spice-infused finish makes it impossible to resist a second taste.

The Cerasuolo di Vittoria is a deep ruby red color. It has aromas of dried cherry, chocolate, smoke, herb and spice. It gains some licorice notes with time in the glass. Soft round fruity medium bodied palate with a good dose of acidity. The wines gives off dried cherry, truffle and smoky flavors in the mouth. Long finish.
