La Moresca 'Nerocapitano' Frappato 2020

La moresca is located in the southern most corner of the province of Catania,
between Etna and Gela on the southern coast, at ~450 meters above sea level. The
area has a combination of deeply compressed sandstone soils mixed with calcium
and iron rich clay. The old vines are a mixture of Nero d’avola, Grenache and
nerocapitano (frappato) for the reds, and the extremely rare vermentino corso for
the white; all of which are worked without the aid of any chemical or pesticide. The
wines are naturally fermented without temperature control and no sulphur is used at
all throughout the process.
