My Frappato is born from a dream that I think I’ve always had.

Characteristics

My Frappato is born from a dream that I think I’ve always had. I want it to convey all that I think, the land I’m working, the air I’m breathing: Vittoria with all its history, perhaps myself as well. I particularly love it because it is a synthesis of my Sicily, with a thousand faces. I adore it because it’s difficult, at times rough and bloody, and yet extremely elegant. I thank it for having brought me back to Sicily, a land that many are still departing from.
