San Michele di Ganzaria, Sicilia



Nerocapitano is what the farmers in Filippo’s village call Frappato, Sicily’s lightest, most fragrant red grape. From twenty year old vines planted over clay and limestone 430 metres above sea level. Fermented on the skins for a fortnight in plastic tini, it is pressed off to concrete for a year of élevage. A light, bright and nimble Mediterranean wine, with flavours of cherry and citrus. Immediate, joyful and testament to the fact that the simple things are often the best.
