A light-bodied red grape widely grown on the south-eastern coast of Sicily. Frappato does not grow anywhere else and has an earthy and delicate yet fruity texture. The grape is of great historical importance, both for its wines and its legislative influence. In 2005, the Cerasuolo di Vittoria region became Sicily’s first and only DOCG. Cerasuolo di Vittoria wines are a blend of Frappato and the region’s main grape, Nero d’Avola.
Cherry-colored, aromatic and low in tannins, varietal Frappato wines are light-bodied and slightly reminiscent of good Gamay or Pinot Noir Grapes. However, Frappato is found in more blended wines than varietal examples, and this is where the variety really shines.
Born from the happy marriage between the Sicilian and international Frappato Syrah, expressed in net scents of red fruit and intense ruby color around the Mediterranean warmth.
