Wine Tasting: SE Sicily

  • Mom and Pop Wine Shop 6908 Northeast Sandy Boulevard Portland, OR, 97213 United States (map)

This week we will be diving deeper into a particular region, Southeast Sicily, home to the DOCG Cerasuolo di Vittoria, with its blend of two red grapes, Nero d'Avola & Frappato. Why should you care? First, this is Sicily's only DOCG--meaning the quality and distinctive nature of the wines from this area have been widely recognized for a while. Second, it's spring and these reds have the perfect body & aromatic profile for the freshness of spring flavors. We will taste a varietal example of each partner in the blend separately and then taste two Cerasuolo di Vittoria bottlings from two different producers. As usual, $5, four wines and snacks.
