This 100% Frappato is a lighter color, and more delicate and gentle than what is typically found in Sicily, but that is exactly why we like it — perfect for a slight chill to drink in the warmer months. Think red cherries, strawberries, raspberries and pomegranate. From selected organically farmed vineyards planted in 1995 on calcareous soils – temperature controlled stainless steel fermentation, and continued settling in tank for 4-5 months before bottling. Continues to rest another 4 months in bottle before release. Floral aromatics, soft and velvety smooth on the palate. Delicious fresh red fruit flavors. Very easy to drink and it is meant to do so now. Pure delight for hot weather. By itself, or cheese and cured meats, or with firm textured fin fish.
