Predicting the “next big thing” is devilishly hard, but we love Frappato. Introduced to Sicily by the Greeks and a distant relation to Tuscan Sangiovese, this grape variety produces lighter bodied reds with funky and floral aromas. This is completely unoaked and positively bounces with black fruits, dried flowers, plums and an almost earthy meatiness. It is also really fun to say, go on… Frappato.
The Galfano family have owned land in Sicily for more than two centuries. Set amongst 100 year old olive trees in the Marsala region, the winery has been passed down from generation to generation and is now run by Alessandra and Fabrizio Galfano. Their mission statement is to make unforgettable wines and they do this by handpicking (and judging by their labels some angels may even pick up the secateurs from time to time) only Sicily’s native grape varieties and by using traditional methods, organic fertiliser, natural yeast and no herbicides or oak. Sicily’s cleansing winds, reliable climate and wide temperature range makes it a perfect place to make fresh and fruity reds. This Frappato is completely unoaked and comes from 20 year old vines.
