2013 Frupa - Sorrentino

This is a red wine made with the Piedirosso grape, the ubiquitous grape in the Campania region. The producer is Sorrentino on the foothills of Mount Vesuvius.. a winery we visited in July 2020 ( see the blog related to the visit on the This is an IGT wine because a 100% Piedirosso is not in a disciplinare of any DOC appellation in the Mount Vesuvius area.

The wine is dark garnet color with the rim not true to the core, the wine is 7 year old when we tasted. The viscosity is medium high for a Piedirosso based wine (13.5%abv). The nose is intense with notes of black and red fruits ( wild strawberries is the most evident) and black cherry with tertiary notes of licorice. The palate confirms the nose with a medium high body l, a medium high acidity, smooth tannins and a medium persistence. In summary a very good wine, velvety smooth and a perfect pairing with pork ( as we tasted it) or chicken or any pasta dish. PM: 90
