Vito Lauria is a Sicilian local. After studying winemaking in Friuli he expanded his experience working with some outstanding local wineries. Returning to Sicily in 2005 he worked as the oenologist for a local organic winery, spending his spare time renovating the family winery at Alcamo in the northwest. All wines are the product of organic vineyards carefully and expertly overseen by Vito. The focus is on Sicily’s noble local varieties, picked and vinified to retain balanced fruit, varietal character and sense of place without over ripe, baked concentration that sometimes represents the island. By calling on a friend who is a talented artist Vito has also ensured that his packaging is some of the most tastefully stylish that we have come across.
Vino Lauria Rose di Frappato 2019
Delicious with a capital D. Strawberry and delicate red fruits with a minty, herbaceous tendril on the finish. Serious rose made from a grape that doesn’t need to be mucked about to make it so tastes and feels effortlessly Sicilian.
All stainless steel feremnt with skin contact in the press for just a very few hours to extract some of the lovely ripe flavours from the skins of the organic 100% Frappato grapes.
