Vittoria Frappato DOC BIO

Sicilian pleasantness and drinkability

Frappato is an ancient native grape, so named for its intense fruity scents, cultivated since the 17th century in Sicily in the municipality of Victoria where it found its area of choice. Vinified in purity gives a fresh wine, distinctive for the strong nose of red fruits enjoyed from the glass, bright ruby red, with predominantly cherry hints embellished with a small spicy touch. This wine was obtained after a careful selection of the best Frappato grapes grown exclusively in the vineyards owned within our estate in Contrada Serra D’Elia in the Municipality of Victoria (Ragusa). It is an easy-to-drink wine that goes very well with a large number of first and second dishes of the Sicilian tradition.
