Frappato grapes ripen to a shade of purplish-blue so intense they almost glow. That deep color comes through in the wine too, a vivid shade that mirrors the wine’s powerful fruit aromas and flavor. While most Frappato grows under the heavy Sicilian sun, the wines made from it are generally light, buoyant, and friendly. Gebbia, based in the Sicilian town of Alcamo, is dedicated to indigenous varieties, and winemaker Vito Lauria works to bring out the best, purest expression of all his wines. The family estate is farmed organically, and the winemaking is unadorned, with a gentle press, a cool fermentation to preserve freshness, and eight months age in concrete. Thus, Frappato’s essential nature shines out of this glass. Aromas of inky black plum, blueberry, fig, violet, and peppercorn. The palate is rich yet appealingly soft and vibrant, bursting with fruit leather notes, orange oil, and tamarind. Tannins make a late appearance on the finish, coloring in around lingering notes of dried fruits. This wine lends itself to fall cuisine in the same way Beaujolais does, powerfully flavored without being overbearing, and a versatile match for turkey or quiche.
