SP68 Terre Siciliane Nero d'Avola Frappato 2014

On a big #Sicily kick of late, this is a step or two up from yesterday in complexity and class. Another steal at $22-25 this is also a blend of Nero di Avola and Frappato. The nose started out reduced, but the palate was clean. The nose grew leaps and bounds after an hour to a fresh mix of red fruit perfume ala Burgundy, fresh cut flowers, and a little wet stone funk. The palate is light as a feather, fresh and consistent with bursts of blood orange, cherry, subtle spice. The finish streams on with excellent acidity and fine, though quite firm, youthful tannin.

Fun wine. Notes of Campari, burnt orange, spice, red fruit, flowers on the nose. The palate was lean but lively. Balanced structure but lacked fruit in mid palate. Fine finish. Good food wine. #frappato #sicily #ctbucklinwine — 6 years ago

Sicilia IGT Frappato 2014

Delish #Frappato #Italy #Wine. Haven't had too many of these. Opens up to be delicate and dry. Pungent black licorice nose, some strawberry rhubarb flavor. Heavy, full aromas, yet subtly dry and eye opening. Opened 11/3/17 — 6 years ago

Terre Siciliane Frappato 2013

Of the Tami wines, this is the best and shows the best aspects of the Frappato grape character in a ridiculous price of about $15. Juicy blueberries, red raspberry, and fresh wild flowers on the nose and palate. Really well tuned acidity and supple, but bright acidity. A great intro to #frappato if you have never tried it. #occhipinti — 8 years ago
