A bright, light red wine from Sicily, also suitable for summer chilling. Intense red fruits and plums with light tannins and a pomegranite twist on the finish, this is fun and immensely enjoyable.

Pellegrino are 1 of only 3 of all the original 19th Century founders of the Marsala trade still be in existence.  Their vineyards are located in the westernmost part of Sicily, which is characterized by a great variety of microclimates. The territory boasts the highest vine-covered area in Italy as it is considered the most suitable area of the island for grape growing; the intense light, the dry climate, the fresh soils, the winds coming from the south and the strong atmospheric temperature range, create the ideal conditions for the production of quality wines.

Frappato is one of Sicily's rare red wine varieties, and one that might actually be genetically related to Italy's top red wine Sangiovese. Frappato is perfectly at home growing on Mount Etna, although the Tareni Frappato's vineyards are located on the other side of the island, in the Trapani province, on clayey, gravelly soils at an altitude of 80 m above sea level.
