The Vittoria estate: in the land of Baroque
In the land of Baroque, where Art Nouveau florals become elegant and sophisticated, Donnafugata produces fragrant reds of extraordinary pleasantness: Bell'Assai and Floramundi, whose labels are a tribute to the artistic tradition of these lands. The varieties cultivated are also an authentic expression of the territory: Frappato, one of Sicily's oldest varieties, and Nero d'Avola, the king of Sicily's red grape varieties.
Cerasuolo di Vittoria, the only Sicilian Docg
Between the Ibleo plateau and the sea, Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOCG is a red wine made from vineyards planted with Nero d'Avola (50-70%) and Frappato (30-50%). The union between the two grape varieties is actually a dialogue between two souls: the floral and delicately spicy one of Nero d'Avola and the fragrant and fruity one of Frappato. Experience the emotion of Floramundi, a red wine to be enjoyed chilled and with unusual pairings, the fruit of an ancient viticulture that began with the Greeks in the 7th-6th centuries BC and gave birth to Cerasuolo di Vittoria in 1606.
