Other winemakers followed suit and now Sicily is heralded as one of the great natural wine regions. COS’ Frappato has a predominant character of ripe, juicy red berries. Along with that you’ll find subtle notes of herbs and tea leaves. The tannins are tiny, so serve this at around 50 degrees. I loved it with my salad of smoked duck breast, greens, and sherry vinaigrette.
