Frappato

From the Sicilian dialect, “frappatu” indicates the fruit fragrance that unequivocally defines the wine bouquet that comes from its grapes. The Frappato Costadune is in fact a young wine captivating for its marked fruity hints of black cherry and pomegranate. A red that should be served chilled and pairs perfectly even with fish.
