DENOMINATION: Vittoria DOC FRAPPATO Sicilia
PRODUCTION ZONE: south-east Sicily, in the territory of Acate.
TERRAINS & CLIMATE: altitude 120-150 meters a.s.l.; gently sloping terrains; soils tending towards sandy interspersed with a substratum of calcareous tuff and medium-textured soils. The climate is typically Mediterranean, warm temperate, mitigated by a sea breeze during the summer, as well as by a wide variation between day and night temperatures.
VINEYARD: VSP (Vertical Shoot Positioning) training with spurred cordon pruning, leaving 6 to 10 buds per plant. Planting density 4,000-4,500 plants per hectare (1,619 - 1,822 an acre); yields of 7.0 – 8.0 tons/hectare (2.8 - 3.2 t/acre)
VINTAGE:the climatic trend of the vintage was fairly normal with slightly above average rainfall, mainly concentrated in spring and in some days of summer. Accurate agronomic management favored a harmonious vegetation-production cycle, giving rise to grapes that achieved the right sugar, aromatic and phenolic ripeness. Unlike the previous vintage, there was no premature ripening.
HARVESTING: harvest time was chosen with extreme care, thus some Frappato vineyards were harvested between 10/9 and 12/9 and others between 17/9 and 23/9.
VINIFICATION: fermentation in stainless steel with maceration on the skins for about 8-9 days at a temperature of 24- 25°C (75,2- 77°F). After malolactic fermentation, aging in tank for 4 months and then in bottle for at least 3 months.
ANALYTICAL DATA: alcohol 12.70 % vol., total acidity: 5.3 g/l., pH: 3.50.
