One of the toughest pairings we do is with chocolate.
One might think that any red will do but au contraire. So why does this wine work?
Brett says: The blend of the Nero d'Avola and Frappato brings forth
notes of chocolate and raspberry. Smooth Operator!


Poggio de Bortolone was founded by the Cosenza family at the end of the 18th century,
and passed down from father to son ever since. The name of the estate comes from
a Sicinian expression, "Puoiu ri Burtuluni", describing an estate on top of a hill.
Poggio di Bortolone's Cerasuolo di Vittoria is a blend of 60% Nero d'Avola and 40% Frappato, fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks. Faded ruby in color with a garnet rim,
the wine emits beautiful aromas of cherries, plums and blackberries dusted with spice.
The palate is fresh and alluring with wonderful fruit concentration balanced
by a subtle earthiness and mouth-coating tannins.
