TASTING NOTES: Ruby red with mauve reflections. The notes of rose and candied violet are typical, with a elegant smokey tone. In the mouth much red fruit with balsamic tones.

Robert Parker (RP) : 87 Points (2018)
The 2018 Vittoria Frappato expands on many of the best qualities of this grape: the lightness, the freshness and the simplicity. This wine is all about primary intensity, with wild cherry, olive and grilled herb. You could pair it with codfish or grilled chicken. This vintage is a little leaner than normal, but all those moving pieces work in general harmony.

Tasting Note: Vibrant Sicilian white wine from volcanic soil, rounded, fruity and perfumed with yellow plums, white stone fruit and herbs.

Food Matching: A white wine for all seasons. Good as an aperitif, but excellent with starters based on fish and pasta.

Vinification: The grapes are picked into crates and are at once refrigerated at 8°C. After light crushing and destemming they are soft pressed. The decanted must is racked and inoculated with yeasts then ferments at 15°C for 20 days. The wine thus obtained remains on the lees until February with continuous mixing. 10% of the must is fermented in barriques. The wine is then matured in stainless steel tanks and Allier oak 225 litre barriques.

The history of Etna is studded with the historic eruptions which have shaped it. The legendary one of 1614, lasting ten years and the longest ever recorded, halted right on the border of the vineyards of Sciaranuova. A strongly evocative name for our Cru dell’Etna based on Nerello Mascalese. High black lands confer an elegant style, refined and balanced.

Les Preuses is probably taken from the word “Perreuse” (stone), the name given to the ancient Roman road which ran below the current vineyard. Made for ageing thanks to a dense, compact, clay-rich soil resting on a limestone bed.
