2019 Giovanni Gurrieri Frappato

$20

a delightfully fresh and approachable red. The fruit is beautifully fragrant, with intense notes of bilberry, blackberry, raspberry, and aromatic floral tones. On the palate it remains fresh among the sweet and fine tannins, and the acidity lifts the fruity character up, giving depth and complexity to a wine whose weight is as light as a feather.

In southeastern Sicily close to Ragusa, Gurrieri is perched within the Vittoria D.O.C. zone; an estate that has been farming and making exceptional wines for three generations on their family property. 18 hectares of fruit split between the extremely fertile areas of Mount Iblei and the Noto Valley is where Giovanni Gurrieri continues his father and grandfather's dream. In 1997, he started the official winery. Nearby, the Hyblaean Mountains have soils rich with clay, plenty of red sand, and limestone, which combine with the breezy Mediterranean climate, adding gorgeous freshness to the local Frappato and Nero d'Avola. From a hand-harvest to little to no oak use, the final juice has seen no intervention, keeping the finished wines expressive, fresh, and full of dynamic character.
