*Normally $18* 100% organic Frappato. Grapes were harvested in mid-September, gently pressed and left on the skins for just 4 hours, cold fermentation at 55 degrees F for 15 days, and then simply aged for 4 months in concrete tanks.
Fragrant and fresh, this savory rosato has alluring scents of wild rose and ripe red berry. The crisp juicy palate doles out crushed raspberry, strawberry, Mediterranean herb and a hint of citrus zest. Bright acidity gives it a tangy, mouthwatering finish.
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. Frappato is used for this rosato because of it's vibrancy, bright red fruit character, and gorgeous color.
Enjoy with anything from salads, crudo, and cold appetizers to white meat and fish dishes.
