Maninalto Sicily edition 2017
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.
