Nerocapitano Frappato 2022
Nerocapitano is what the locals call Frappato. This grape is typically blended with Nero D’Avola to make Sicily’s only DOCG wine, Cerasuolo di Vittoria. On its own it's bright and vibrant with tons of earthy red cherry notes. The Lamoresca plantings are twenty-year-old vines growing on limestone and clay soils at 1400ft above sea level. No chemicals are used in farming and no additions during vinification. This nuanced red loves a slight chill and shows a dynamic mix of bright red cherries, dark chocolate, pomegranate and a soft mouthfeel. Incredibly balanced and electric on the palate, this may be the finest example of Frappato available and is certainly one of the tastiest natural wines you will come across.
