2019 Lamoresca Frappato Nerocapitano Rosso

Sicily, Italy

Another Sicilian god, Fillipo's Lamoresca range will take you on a journey. Nerocapitano is what the locals in this part of the world call Frappato. The fruit comes from twenty year old vines planted over clay and limestone. Seven days on skins, before being pressed off to concrete vats for eight months. A vibrant, perfumed wine with sun-kissed fruit and nose heady with wildflowers. Strong acidity, with cranberry, strawberry, lots of tannins poking through. Lovely medium-bodied red.

2019 Lamoresca Frappato Nerocapitano Rosso
About the maker

In the rolling hills of Sicily's interior, the middle of nowhere, lies the incredible Lamoresca vines with the smouldering Etna in the distance.

Filippo Rizzo's plot is planted to native Sicilian grapes like a Nerocapitano (Frappato) for the reds, and the extremely rare Vermentino Corso for his white. The area covers five hectares and vines are up to 60 years old, planted over a mix of sand and clay at an elevation of 430 metres above sea level. There are enormous temperature differentials between day and night over summer, unusual for what is otherwise normally a moderated summer climate. The vineyard work is practical and organic, with Filippo choosing to pair things right back to let the character of these special grapes shine through. The wines are striking. Compact, powerful, full of energy but riddled with complexity and flavours that are rarely experienced.
