Nicosia Frappato Terre Siciliane IGT

2018

In a Nutshell

A really pretty and perfumed example of the Frappato grape from south-eastern Sicily.

Tasting Notes

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.

Production Notes

Frappato grapes are grown on sandy soil situated at apporximately 200m above sea level. Grapes are hand picked in September. The grapes undergo maceration and fermentation for approximately 10-15 at a controlled temperature of between 22-24°C. The wine is aged in stainless stell vats and 2 months in the bottle.
