This is 100% Frappato grapes from Western Sicily fermented and aged in steel.  Light ruby in color, clear and bright.  The nose has cherries with a touch of cherry cough syrup.  Light to medium bodied.  On the palate, there is some complexity.  Nice acidity.  Firm tannins.  Flavors of tart cherries with a bit of underlying tar (in a good way).  This is a very interesting take on Frappato.  It drinks well now and should for another  seven to ten years.  It will work better with food.  Arancini's would work well (and other fried foods).
