Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOCG Classico 2012 – Gold Medal at SAKURA ’16

The Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOCG Classico 2012

have been awarded with the Gold medal at the

SAKURA” Japan Women’s Wine Awards 2016

These are the comments for Gaetana Jacono who, in addition to being the owner of the winery, is also the Brand Ambassador del Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOCG and of the territory of Ragusa:

I am very happy with this prize, which I consider a further confirmation of the end of the monopoly of the Nero d’Avola grape. The Cerasuolo d’Avola controlled appellation (DOCG) is the maximum expression of our territory, the province of Ragusa, fruit of the marriage between the elegant Nero d’Avola and the fragrant Frappato. It is certainly a wine which allows excellent matches with the cuisines of distant countries, it goes extremely well, for example, with spicy dishes and exemplifies a modern way of drinking, fresher, less concentrated, conceived to go hand in hand with food without dominating it

On 17 January 2013 Gaetana Jacono from Valle dell’Acate has been appointed brand ambassador for “Cerasuolo di Vittoria” .

“Brand ambassadors” are appointed by the Sicily Region administration and are “used” by the Region itself to promote “born in Sicily” products in an ever increasingly more active partnership between public and private sicilian institutions to increase the exports from this beautiful Italian island.

All of us at CMK are absolutely certain that Gaetana will assume this role with her infamous enthusiasm and professionalism.

Buon lavoro Gaetana!
