REFRESHING 'DELIGHTFUL' SICILIAN WINE FROM A NOTEWORTHY PRODUCER
"I have become a huge fan of Sicilian wines over the years and especially this grape of Frappato from Planeta. It is just so pleasant, silky, soft, fresh and easy to consume. A perfect pool or beach wine since it has a refreshing quality and does not have those aggressive tannins. With all that pretty strawberry and cherry fruit leaping from the glass and tickling your palate, this wine is simply delicious!" –Jim Knight, The Wine House
"Bright red. Multidimensional, explosively perfumed nose combines raspberry, sour red cherry, rose petal, violet, minerals and cinnamon. Silky on entry, then brightly
saline, offering vibrant, focused red berry, cherry and mineral flavors. Perfectly integrated acidity and seamless tannins give this sappy wine outstanding thrust on the extremely long, floral finish. This delightful wine is so good it literally goes down like water." –Ian D'Agata, December 2016
"A red with good plummy fruit, hints of citrus and cedar undertones. Medium to light body and a clean finish. Drink now." –James Suckling, November 2016
Appellation: Vittoria D.O.C. Vineyard: Mogli. Varietal: 100% Frappato Vinification: 7 days on the skins, soft pressing with the basket, stainless steel fermentation
A rare and exclusive grape variety cultivated on only a few hectares, Frappato is best expressed in the red sands of Vittoria, not far from the sea. An aromatic and pleasant red wine as few others, a perfect synthesis between
tradition and innovation.
We traveled through Sicily as on a great wine continent, establishing our estates in five different areas from west to east, seeking our interpretation of them through research into indigenous varieties, including those by now forgotten, and into the suitability of the different terroirs to welcome international varieties as well. We planned to eventually build around each territory a comprehensive system of experience composed of hospitality, cooking, nature and culture. On these elements the history of our company has always been based. This instinct for the future, together with our curiosity to see the world and compare ourselves with it, has guided our choices.
