Maninalto Sicily edition 2017

Red wine

South-est of Sicily near to Vittoria city, the land of the unique DOCG appellation from the island - Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOCG red wine.   
 

2017  was super exciting as it was my first wine

I could commercialise. 
It was also a great vintage, much less acid than 2016 (which I've never bottles), very fruity and fresh.
