"With wine making in his family blood, Vito Lauria decided to attend the University of Udine in Friuli where he obtained a degree in Enology in 2003. After stepping off the campus he worked at a number wineries in northern Italy for a few years before returning to Sicily in 2005. Vito came home to open the old family winery in Alcamo, 30 miles west of Palermo."
Bright red. Slightly earthy nuances keep the pungent, bright floral aromas that Frappato is famous for slightly under wraps. Then livelier on the palate, with clean-red cherry and berry flavors that are nicely complicated by minerals and aromatic herbs. Finishes long and smooth, with lingering red fruit elements and a hint of coriander. Slightly bigger-bodied and more textured than many other Frappatos, drink this wine slightly chilled.
