An easy wine to devour but an intricate one to make so that the wine’s raspberry and cranberry fruits can display and retain their internal brightness and levity, the whole offset by tannins in the appropriate minor key and well hidden in the background. Very good.”

Frappato with fine fruit expression, clear and resonant, and a savoury-salty mouthfeel to complete the sense of coherence and lift. Brisk acidity and light body make it crisply textured. It has great purity of fruit with fresh raspberry and cranberry notes. A lovely expression of Frappato which is true to type.

“A deep, dark 100% Nero d’Avola red showing its typical varietal flavours of dark red fruits (black cherry plums, blackcurrant) with pepper and liquorice offset by lingering oak spices and tobacco. Supple body and great fruit and oak tannins, too. A well-executed international style”.
