    "Contrada PT Pettineo Vino" Frappato Terre Siciliane IGT 2017 (BIO)

    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 vines, then the previous owner raised them in wire frames, where they grew very tall. About 2,600 bottles were produced.

    "Transparent dark cherry red. In contrast to the other two Cotradas, the PT currently shows the most fruit. Sweet cherries, sour cherries and plums are accompanied by sweet yeast dough and light tobacco. Nevertheless, the wine does not seem cloying or overripe at all, but consistently fine and elegant. The ethereal, which is also found in the other two Contradas, is also present here. The Vino di Contrada PT is highly present from the first moment. There is a lot of juiciness at play and also a pleasant pressure on the palate. Like the other two Frappatos, the PT is extremely elegant and transparent, almost cool and crystal clear like a white wine, but then again equipped with a silky and distinctive tannin. When people talk about almost Burgundian elegance in Sicilian wines, they are actually always talking about Nerello Mascalese from Etna. If you have this Frappato in your glass, Sicilian elegance can be redefined. Here it meets a sour cherry fruitiness and the aforementioned impressive clarity and precision."
