IL FRAPPATO 2019 DOC Vittoria Frappato
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer VALLE DELL'ACATE
This unique 100% Frappato from the Acate region of Sicily’s south-east coast is very bright with lots of fruit - a perfect red for a hot summer day. Well even in the Fall, the bright fruit flavours are a genuine pick-me-up. Medium deep reddish colour., the attractive, slightly spicy nose has warm, ripe, plummy, red cherry, strawberry flavours with some mineral-tinged, sandalwood notes. Dry, medium bodied, tangy, spicy, gently plummy, red currant and cherry flavours followed up with a very crisp, sandalwood-tinged, high acid finish. Has 12.5% alcohol and 5 g/L residual sugar with lot number L0921 on the back label. The recommended 2017 (**+) was released on September 14, 2019 at $25.95. CSPC 10932
