Info about the wine

This Frappato comes from the historic single vineyard Pettineo, which lies beyond the Serra San Bartolo. The topsoil is sandy with a depth of 50 to 60 centimeters. After that, one finds limestone. Originally the Frappato, now about 60 years old, stood there in Albarello upbringing, then the previous owner raised them in wire frames where they grew very tall. About 2,600 bottles were produced.
 

Color

Covered cherry red with delicate mahogany lightening towards the rim.
 

Nose

Dense dark fruit of black cherries, blackberries, plum jam and brown bread immediately rise to the nose of the PT Vino di Contrada. It is nicely rounded off by tobacco, dark liquid chocolate and roasted rosemary. It seems more compact and denser than the other two Contrada, but no less inspiring.
 

Palate

The same density and fullness as in the nose it also shows on the palate. The fruit sweetness in combination with the intense salty note makes it appear sexy and beguiling in the truest sense of the word. At the same time, it conveys an incredible clarity and freshness, which is further underlined by the moderate alcohol of 12.5 vol%. A wine with high presence and a powerful palate, which gives drinking pleasure and at the same time has a very good storage potential.
