Nerocapitano is the local word for Frappato in this part of the world. It will reward decanting but if you can't resist popping the cork and drinking it from the bottle that's OK. There is an earthy, savoury charm to this that underlies the fruitiness. Cheery and berry notes on the palate all the while maintaining the fresh acidity that you should expect from Frappato it is yummy and fun with a light dry finish. Again, as with the other Lamoresca wines this best enjoyed with food. - Chris L

Winery Notes: "We work in the greatest respect for nature. Our products are artisanal and organic, bio-certified by Q Certificazioni. We spend most of our time in the fields of the vinyard and olive grove, our true place of work. The weeds are managed mechanically and to nurture the soil we use cover crops, mostly local legumes. Only if necessary, sulfur based treatments are used against fungal diseases. In the cellar we dedicate ourselves to showcasing the year's work between the rows of vines. The perfectly ripe grapes arrive in the cellar and are immediately destemmed. Fermentation occurs naturally, in open-top barrels; no yeast is added and the temperature is not controlled. For the red grapes we practice long maceration on the skins, while for the white grapes only a brief maceration is used. The aging continues in a combination of cement tanks, plastic tanks and old wooden barrels."
