Winemaker’s Notes

Il Frappato D.O.C Vittoria

Produced in: C. da Bidini – Acate (RG) – eastern Sicily

Appellation: D.O.C Vittoria Il Frappato

Grape Variety: 100% Frappato

Aging process: Steel vats for 6 months; bottle-aged for at least 3 months

Alcohol level: 13,5%

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

BLACK SOIL WITH WHITE PEBBLES: these vineyards are located at roughly 100 meters above sea level. The soil is black, relatively compact and riddled with white stones. The soil structure makes it possible for plant roots to oxygenate freely, extending down deep into the ground. The company produces a red wine here, Il Frappato, which draws complex perfumes and a decent acidity from the characteristics of the terrain.

 

Vinous – “Inviting, perfumed aromas of violet, pomegranate, nutmeg and cilantro. Then lovely and lively in the mouth too, with similar flavors to the aromas. Finishes long and clean, with a vibrant peppery quality. Very different from the 2017 Frappato, but I can see how both will have their respective fans, so I’ll be magnanimous and won’t pick sides.” (93 Pts)
