Never fans of Frappato or particularly of Cerasuolo di Vittoria which is Frappato with Nero d'Avola we tasted an example in the forest of Sicilian stands at the London International Wine Fair mainly because of its low alcohol (12.5%) and the delightfully suave gentleman there. The latter explained that their Frappato was made in a light style and could be chilled and served with fish.
We were immediately won over by the dissimilarity to the Frappatos of old and as so often happens we ercognise this grape in what to us is its best expression. Highly recommended to anyone wanting something exceptional to import into this country and grace their list.
