2019 Gulfi Cerasulo di Vittoria

From $29

Dusty and floral in character with a mix of blackberries, violets and lavender on the nose. This soothes the palate with soft textures that usher in a pretty mix of red berries, minerals and spice. The slightest tannic presence lingers through the finish along with hints of licorice. This will find its best expression at the dinner table.

The ancient depiction of the famous mosaic found in the Piazza Armerina, in the province of Enna, tells the legend of Eros (Cupid) and Psyche (Beauty) who, out of envy from Venus, are forced to love each other in secret. This passion gives birth to a daughter called Voluptas (Pleasure).

This represents a metaphor where Eros is Gulfi, whose love for his beautiful land (Psyche) gives birth to his wines which are an expression of pure pleasure (Voluptus).

About Gulfi

Sicily Region

See all Gulfi wines

“Our wines contain the essence of our land, the hot sun, the sounds of nature, the intensity of the colors, the immensity of the sky above the vines… Sicily.

Each of our wines has its own personality, the land, the climate, the light, the position of the terroir create unique wines, able to awaken our senses.

We respect what nature offers us by cultivating according to tradition, with sapling vines. We do not irrigate because this was taught to us by our ancestors, we follow the rhythms of nature, letting our vines find their own balance. We cultivate according to the principles of organic farming as a natural consequence of our production philosophy, respecting ourselves and consumers. We have always kept the sacredness of the harvest unchanged, a moment in which we collect the grapes manually, with the rituality of a gesture handed down by history.”
