Grape varieties: Frappato 50%, Nero d'Avola 50%

Grotte alte is a territory: The limestone ridges on which Vittoria, Arianna´s hometown stands. But it is also a wine, Arianna's Cerasuolo di Vittoria, a blend of Frappato and Nero d’Avola grapes, the summary of her Sicily. It is a Mediterranean wine that preserves the taste of the sea, the air and the Iblei Mountains' thermal excursions. It is harmonious and it has undergone long aging. Perhaps it is the most ambitious of her wines. Elegant and proud.
