Feudo di Santa Tresa Cerasuolo di Vittoria Sicilia DOCG 2017 ORGANIC 9.99 bottle Vegan Friendly. It was  very welcome news in 2005 that Cerasuolo di Vittoria had become Sicily’s first Dominazione Origine Controllata e Garantita wine -the highest stamp of quality that can be given to an Italian wine.  A blend of Vittoria’s Frappato grape variety and Sicily's Nero d’Avola, Cerasuolo di Vittoria could not be more typical of the area. The bouquet is of dark, ripe berries.  The palate is soft, with well-rounded fruit, reminiscent of blackberries and damsons. This is an elegant wine, with finesse and a lovely long finish.                                                         
White Wine       
Feudo di Santa Tresa Rina Ianca Grillo Viognier Sicilia DOC 2017 ORGANIC 9.99 bottle. An attractive apple-pie nose, even custardy, very easy to like. Fresh pie apples and lemon with generous and very well-balanced acidity. Tiny bit herbal on the finish. Altogether complete and elegant Properly delicious.I just need to add organic wines are delicious and getting better all the time, but there is little evidence to prove that they  are hangover free! Hangovers occur when you drink too much alcohol that’s the cause of Hangovers!!!
