The one of the frappato is one of the most important native red grape varieties of all the Sicilian lands. Characterized by very fragrant berries with a thick skin, offers aromatic and pleasant wines, rich in fruit and particularly indicated to replace whites in combination with fish, when the latter would not support the combination, as for example in the preparations that  include the tomato.
