Frappato

Frappato

Frappato is a rare, red, Italian wine grape variety varietal planted primarily in Sicily. 

As a varietal, Frappato produces light bodied wines with a distinct grapey aroma and is most commonly seen as a component of Sicily's only DOCG wine, Cerasuolo di Vittoria, which consists of 30-50% Frappato and 50-70% Nero d'Avola, aswell as red wines using 100% Frappato.

An Italian study published in 2008 using DNA typing showed a close genetic relationship between Sangiovese on the one hand and ten other Italian grape varieties on the other hand, including Frappato. 

It is therefore likely that Frappato is a crossing of Sangiovese and another, so far unidentified, grape variety
