Sommelier Secrets for Frappato

Frappato is a likely descendant of the Tuscan Ciliegiolo grape, which is named for its cherry-like flavors after the Italian word for cherry, ciliegia. Incidentally, the region from which it claims the most fame, the only DOCG in Sicily, Cerasuolo di Vittoria, is also named for the word cherry in Sicilian dialect, cerasa.
