Vittoria Frappato

Quite lovely for the style. I’m usually not a fan of frappato, too much overt strawberries without structure, but this one surprised me. Much more restrained on the nose, less ripeness and lots of small red berries, plus some fresh capers and garrigue. Very balanced on the palate, low alcohol, good acid, some minerality and a touch of tannins. Both crushable and interesting — 13 days ago

Spritzy on opening. After blowing off, juicy black berries and black tea with earthy underpinnings. Better and better after a few hours. At 9 yrs old, tannins still prominent but softening. Saving 1/2 of the bottle for 24 hr review. — 12 days ago

Pithos Rosso Vittoria Nero d'Avola Frappato 2020

Actually 100% Nero in this vintage, only 11% ABV. Amphora aged, actually prefer this bottling to the non-Amphora Nero. Mainly black fruited, a little chalky. Very smooth and easy drinking. Great with pizza. — 19 days ago

Grotte Alte Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico Frappato Nero d'Avola 2016

Smells Italian. Impressive but honestly I think it began to break down with air. So would like to open a bottle 4 hours in advance next time and see again. — 8 days ago

Little darker fruit in this vintage. Earthy, tart red cherry, red plum, wild strawberry with an acidic backbone. A favorite. — 19 days ago

Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico 2018

Delectable Wine
9.0

The darkly alluring 2018 Cerasuolo di Vittoria wafts up with spiced black cherries and licorice lifted by violet florals and hints of camphor. The 2018 has a silky-palate feel with ripe, textural red and black fruits. It finishes long yet clean, with rounded tannins and remarkable balance. $21.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, June 2022) — a month ago
