Rosato di Frappato 2019
THE GRAPE AND THE LAND
Vittoria | Sicily | Italy
Frappato is one on the many extraordinary indigenous grapes from the island of Sicily. It thrives in the sandy soils of Vittoria in the southern part of the Island where it produces light, refreshing reds. Though most commonly blended with Nero d’Avola, alone it is a red worthy of a variety of foods from fish to spiced North African fare. We use Frappato for our rosato because we love it’s vibrancy, bright red fruit character, and gorgeous color.
