Vittoria is located on the southeastern side of Sicily. It is most famous for the DOCG wine Cerasuolo di Vittoria, which is a blend of Nero d'Avola and Frappato grapes. The wines are named for "cerasa," "cherries" in Sicilian dialect, because the wines take on the flavors of ripe, fresh red cherries. A beautiful texture in the wine is the result of the red sandy soils in the area, which impart richness in the fruit, contrasted by a pleasant tartness from iron elements.
