Tasting Notes – Frappato Vittoria

Region: Sicily, Italy

Vintage2013
Overall Rating:  

Pairing: This was an unfamiliar grape that was recommended by the waiter at Mozzarella & Vino.  It was a fresh, well-balanced red, with cherry flavors and some herbal/spicy notes.  It was easy to drink while waiting for our entrees and then complemented both the ravioli and the sausage that we ordered.
