Black cherry and sliced blood-orange aromas. Medium to full body, orange-peel undertones and a juicy finish. Clean, focused and real. Delicious all round. From organically grown grapes. Drink now. (James Suckling)

The 2021 Cerasuolo di Vittoria wafts up, more savory than sweet, with smokey earth tones and crushed rocks giving way to black raspberry. This washes across the palate with mineral-tinged red and blue berry fruits complicated by inner herbal tones. Brisk acidity maintains energy throughout as the 2021 tapers off with a salty flourish, leaving licorice and spice hints to linger. (Eric Guido)

A fruity nero d’avola with typical dark cherries, black plums and blackberry fruit. Juicy and round on the palate with a medium body and supple tannins. Easy, fruity finish with bright acidity. Drink now. Glass stopper. (Zekun Shuai)
RP8888 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 11th May 2023
Closed with a glass cork, the unoaked Cusumano 2021 Sicilia Nero d’Avola shows soft dark fruit and black cherry over a medium-weight mouthfeel. This entry-level red is super fresh and lively with cherry, baked plum and toasted cinnamon. The wine is supple and simple to the palate. This is a super production of 696,000 bottles.
