Color: Very clear ruby red. Aroma: Fragrant, fresh and overpowering; hints of red fruits, blueberries, raspberries
and blackberries, violet flowers and sage. Flavor: Very vivacious and fresh, particularly aromatic because of red fruit and rosebuds, a dry pleasant and persistent closing
Best paired with: Appetizers including fresh and aged cheeses, salamis, Sicilian red tuna, fish soup, mullet, sushi and sashimi.
The 2020 Il Frappato di Vittoria shows a pretty translucent ruby color matched by a fresh bouquet of dusty roses, spice and sour melon. It's soft in texture with a peppery twang to its tart cherry and raspberry fruits. This tapers off a bit short but clean and classically dry.
