Tasting Notes
Rina Russa has a unique style, as the Frappato grapes come from ancient clones developed on our estate. It has a beautiful light cherry colour, with a vibrant bouquet of strawberries and a beautifully balanced palate, with silky smooth fruit.

Wine has shaped the lives of the people of Vittoria, who have lived and breathed the culture for over 3,000 years. The symbol is an important part of the brand represents “Sun and Gold” and dates back to medieval times. Sun and Gold are very much associated with Sicily - a land blessed by “golden light”.

Vinification Details
The grapes are chilled overnight at a temperature of 6-8°C, in order to preserve the particular qualities of the Frappato. After a gentle destemming and crushing, grapes are fermented at a temperature of 18-22°C for 10-12 days. The wine is separated from the skins and malolactic fermentation takes place naturally. After malolactic fermentation is complete, the wine is kept on its fine lees for 4-6 months in stainless steel tanks, with regular stirring, before bottling.

pale and poor taste

We were very disappointed with this wine. The colour was pale, it was very weak bodied and had a horrible taste.

watery and tasteless

Absolutely no body. Cerasuolo from the same brand is much better.

Light

This looks like Ribena, but it's a nice wine. It's fruity and doesn't have a nasty aftertaste. I'd buy this again.
