I found the 2010 vintage of this wine to be my favorite at a recent luncheon with winemaker Alessio Planeta.
Will modern grapes like cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay become extinct because of climate change in the future?
Last time I was in Sicily, there was great excitement in the local wine community about the creation of the island’s first DOCG, its first highly denominated wine classification (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita). Amongst the rest of us, there was a bit of puzzlement. The new DOCG would define a traditional, blended wine from the southwest corner of this triangular island, a fairly obscure wine from an international perspective: Cerasuolo di Vittoria.
