Corvo, Irmàna Frappato 2019, Terre Siciliane IGT, Sicily, Italy
Tasting Note: A lively Frappato with attractive aromatics that will lull your nose deep into your glass.
Deep-intensity ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of raspberry, blueberry, raisin, rhubarb, dried cranberry, strawberry, blackberry and blossom.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied Frappato has medium-plus-intensity, red-and-black-fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium-plus acidity and medium tannin ultimately completing with a floral, medium-plus finish.
The midpalate is filled with ripe-and-just-ripened red fruit.
The sort of red wine that wine lovers and wine novices would both enjoy.
Bottle Note: Produced from hand-picked grapes, Irmana Frappato is a red wine with a refreshing fruit palate and soft finish. The rich aromas of red fruits and floral notes are balanced by a pleasant finish, making it the perfect wine to sip with charcuterie, sauces with seafood, or meat dishes. From our native grapes, a wine that is an authentic expression of the island. Hand harvested and cultivated with deep respect for nature.
