Areas of cultivation It is widespread in Sicily, especially in the area of ​​Vittoria in the province of Ragusa.
History He presents a few written documents, with the first dating back to 1760 by Sestini, which speaks to him in his winemaking memorial of Vittoria, where today is still vinified. Other news comes from the early twentieth century, assuming a Spanish origin where two similar varieties are present. Of course it is known that it was present in eastern Sicily already since the XVII century, with the name of Frappato by the meaning of "fruity". But for Baron Antonio Mendola, who lived in the early twentieth century, the vine is a native of Vittoria, present in the area since 1600.
Ampelographic features Leaf: medium, pentagonal, sometimes reniform, upper intense green leaf, glabra. Bunch: medium, pyramidal, with one or two wings, compact or moderately compact; Average cluster length: 20 cm; Peduncle semi-leguminous or woody to the first branching, on average large, long, on average, 4-5 cm; Short or medium pedicel, green, sometimes green-reddish; With obvious, green, sometimes with brunet shades; Pedicel easily separable from the aquarium; Short or medium, greenish-reddish brush. Acino: medium, spheroidal-ellipsoid, irregular, with regular cross-section (circular); Blue-purple peel, with a regularly distributed color, pruinose or very pry-like, thick and curly; Persistent and prominent navel; Juicy flesh, sweet and simple flavor; Colorless or just rosy juice.
Characteristics of the wine obtained from this grape variety Cherry-colored, aromatic and low in tannins, varietal Frappato wines are light bodied and slightly reminiscent of good Beaujolais. However, Frappato is found in more blended wines than varietal examples, and this is where the variety really shines.
Notes It is a wine that finds elastic matches, both in starter for cheeses, with second-tasted fish or first balanced, for a generally light wine.
