Nicosia Frappato Terre Siciliane IGT

2016

In a Nutshell

A fresh and versatile wine from the perfumed and distinctive Frappato grape of Sicily - lovely lightly chilled too!

Tasting Notes

Perfumed floral aromas of rose petal and violet, with cherry notes. The palate is juicy with vibrant red cherry, strawberry and redcurrant characters offset by fresh acidity.

Production Notes

Grapes are grown about 400m above sea level in clay soils. After harvesting in September the grapes are crushed and destemmed. Then they are left to macerate and ferment at a controlled temperature for approximately 8-10 days. After undergoing malolactic fermentation in steel vats the wine is stabilised and filtered before bottling.
