Red of Frappato

One 750ml bottle (12 bottles make a full case)

“100% Estate grown organic Frappato from Vittoria area. Bright red. Floral red berries and aromatic herbs on the nose and in the mouth. Enters bright and juicy with a fresh floral red berry finish that is nicely persistent. A lovely easygoing red… Giusto Occhipinti of COS is a benchmark producer in the Vittoria appellation of Sicily, and certainly one of the most important and influential producers in all of Sicily if not Italy as a whole… For Giusto, “the vineyard is like our life’s savings in the bank, so we must protect it.” Protecting it means that they work organically and biodynamically in order to support the health of the soil. In fact, they have never used any synthetic or chemical additives in the vineyard since the outset in 1980...Extended skin contact is used for many of the wines, including whites. Giusto believes that the skins act as a natural preservative thus permitting the use of lower doses of sulfur." -Beaune Imports
