A fresh and perfumed example of the Frappato grape from south-eastern Sicily, organically farmed and with no added sulphites.
Frappato grapes are grown on sandy soil situated 200m above sea level. Grapes are hand picked in September. The grapes undergo maceration and fermentation for 10-15 days at a controlled temperature of between 22-24°C. The wine is aged in stainless steel vats and 2 months in the bottle.
Delicate and lightly floral aromas of strawberry, redcurrant and wild berries, with hints of aromatic herbs. The palate has vibrant red berry characters balancing fresh acidity. Pairs very well with vegetable tempura, couscous, tabbouleh and Caprese salad. Or enjoy with pasta alla Norma - a classic Sicilian pasta dish with aubergine, ricotta, basil and tomatoes.
