Passimiento IGT Nero d’Avola Frappato
Bright intense red fruit on the nose displaying lots of red berries. The palate is warm and full-bodied with harmonious acidity and smooth and elegant tannins.
Frappato grapes are harvested as soon as they reach maturation, so that all the typical freshness remains in the must which is fermented slowly in small steel tanks. Nero d’Avola grapes are left on the vines for a light withering and for natural dehydration to occur. They are late harvested and with extreme care placed in wooden cases. After a soft pressing the musts are fermented at a controlled temperature. The natural sweetness of the wines is obtained by interrupting the fermentation by dropping the temperature until it is too cold for fermentation to continue. The wine is then matured in steel tanks.
