Santa Tresa boasts a long connection with Cerasuolo di Vittoria. In the 1950s, then under the ownership of Cavalier di Matteo, Santa Tresa was the one of two producers ever to make Cerasuolo di Vittoria and label as such. 

After a very gentle destemming, the Nero d’Avola grapes are fermented in 30hl Slavonian oak botti, at about 18-24°C. The number of delestages and remontages is decided by tasting. Once fermentation is completed, the juice remains on its skins for around 15 days. After it has been separated from the skins, it is put back into oak botti, where malolactic fermentation occurs naturally. The Frappato is fermented in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 18-20°C, cooler than for the Nero d’Avola in order to retain the fruity notes. After fermentation, the juice is left on the skins for 8-10 days, after which malolactic fermentation takes place.

On the nose, there are notes of Morello cherries, and caramel. The palate is mouth-filling, with excellent structure, soft tannins and a long finish.
