Frappato 'Bio Vegan' Nicosia 2021

Frappato "Bio Vegan" from the well-known Sicilian winery Nicosia is a fruity and fresh red wine perfect for everyday meals and to accompany wonderful vegetables. The grapes of the same name are harvested by hand while the vinification takes place entirely in steel and the wine matures for 2 months in the bottle before being ready. The wine is ruby red in colour with brilliant violet hues, while the nose reveals aromas of small red fruits, flowers and Mediterranean scrub. The taste is agile, fresh and vinous. Organic Wine

Medium open goblet

Perfect for young and medium bodied red wines which don't require excessive oxygenation to open. The opening, slightly tighter than the body of the glass, favors the concentration of aromas towards the nose, enhancing the perception of aromas and limiting the dispersion
