Terre Siciliane Il Frappato 2017

Delectable Wine
9.0

Luminous red. Inviting aromas of ripe red cherry, raspberry nectar, cinnamon, and minerals. Fresh and juicy, with lovely inner-mouth perfume to the mineral and sweet, spicy red berry flavors. Finishes long and fragrant. Perhaps not as concentrated as some past Frappatos from this estate, but a lovely wine nonetheless. (Ian D'Agata, Vinous, August 2019) — 9 days ago

Rosso Arcaico Aleatico Grechetto 2018

Excellent fruity, light red wine that goes perfectly with pizza. Light red fruit to start, finishing with acid. A simple wine, but truly enjoyable. — 21 days ago

Pretty closed right now, should be kept in cellar for a few years or decanted several hours prior to drinking. Dark red berries, mineral and fine tannin. — 2 months ago

This was an interesting departure for the evening. Juxtaposed to the Morgado. This was old world with a big O. Mineral-driven, earthy nose. On the palate, it displayed smoke, along with volcanic soil notes. Pomegranate fruit displays tension, along with a high degree of acid. Comes across as firm and edgy. Squeaky clean finish. 100% old world - Elements Restaurant, NJ. — 5 months ago

SP68 Terre Siciliane Nero d'Avola Frappato 2018

My first Frappato and I really enjoyed it. Some fruit and a little funk on the nose. Very light body, with bold, juicy fruit flavors. Balanced with a nice backbone of acidity and some tannins from the Nero D’Avola, this became not only a flavorful wine, but a very cohesive and balanced one with a few hours open. — 21 days ago

10 Il Frappato 2013

Beautiful and intense. Dried herbs, tomato vine, tart cherries, fresh raspberries, olive compote. From a small producer and terroir that invokes natural production and vinification. — 21 days ago

9.1

Sweet cherry, iron, grippy tannins. Slightly softer and sweeter the second night, but still relatively wound up. Perplexing wine given my experience with her style. Not sure when to try the next bottle of this. — 3 months ago
