Gurrieri 2019 Frappato, Terre Siciliane IGT, Sicily

WINEMAKER:  Giovanni Gurrieri

FARMING:  Organic certified

VARIETIES:  Frappato

VINEYARD/TERROIR:  These vineyards are of reddish iron-rich sand, interspersed with layers of clay, at about 280 meters (900 feet) above sea level. The climate is very hot but with cooler night-time temperature (which leads to better acidity in the grapes).

VINIFICATION: The fruit is harvested in several passes, at moderate ripeness, normally around the middle of September; the grapes are lightly crushed and fermented at controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks using indigenous yeasts. Maceration is around two weeks. The wine is aged in stainless steel for 9 months before bottling.

Tasting Notes: A refreshing, light red wine that screams for a little cheese or meat on the side. Notes of dusty strawberry, tart black cherry, terra cotta and a hint of fresh thyme make it a great candidate for adding a little chill to the bottle!
