Calatafimi Segesta (TP)Sicilia
Undefiled hills, clean agriculture, the bosom of the Elymian civilization that gave us the glorious Temple of Segesta (4th century B.C.) with its spectacular ancient theatre, still in use and amazingly well preserved.
Here is the birthplace of the wines of Azienda Agricola Ceuso, a family concern where craftsmanship of the most refined and educated kind availing itself of state-of-the-art micro technology carries on the ancient art of wine growing and wine making.
Ideal with game, braised beef, stews and aged cheeses
Ceuso is the wine that bears the company name and the name of the area where the vineyards stand. In the
local dialect ceuso means mulberry, the plant introduced by the Arabs over a thousand years whose leaves
are fed to silkworms. Ceuso is the child of the Sicilian indigenous varietal par excellence Nero d'Avola
together with two extraordinary international varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Ceuso is a truly
accomplished great red, complex and elegant, aged in French oak barriques for twelve months and then a
further twelve months of bottle refinement. Ceuso is a fine wine embodying all the characteristics that make
it eminently suitable for long-term ageing.
