Feudi del Pisciotto Frappato 2010, Sicily

imageFrappato di Vittoria is a Sicilian grape variety that makes light and fragrant red wines. However all Frappatos tend to be IGT and there is only one DOCG wine from Sicily. The attractive label on the Feudi del Pisciotto is designed by Carolina Marengo-Kisa and these labels are sold to benefit the restoration efforts on the island.

The winery enjoys the key elements of the Sicilian coast. 6km inland from the sea, and slight 250m elevation.Deep permeable ruby colour with a thick lightened rim. It has a smoky floral fragrance, black pepper and concentrated dark berries. Full-bodied wine with high acidity, given the age the tannins are resolving nicely. Intense flavours of black dark berries, slightly citrus, swirly tasty textures. Great with grilled lamb sausages and roasted tomatoes. Drink now. 89.
