IGT Terre Siciliane
Made with carefully selected Frappato grapes, an organic wine that reveals the authentic expression of this ancient grape variety, typical of the southeastern Sicily. This wine has a ruby red colour with brilliant violet highlights and a very intense and fragrant bouquet featuring distinctive notes of strawberry, raspberry and wild berries, floral scents and hints of aromatic herbs. Its flavour is intensly fruity, fresh and velvety.
