"Versatile eastern Sicilian that can be played two ways thanks to its unusual pairing of indigenous red grapes. Lightly chill to accentuate Frappato's varietal character of tangy, juicy fruits, or go on room temperature to highlight the spice-laced exuberance of Nerello Mascalese (the star of Etna Rosso in Sicily's north-east). Those baking spice notes have been gently accentuated with four months' barrique ageing. Think fattier barbecued fare or tomato-based sauces. "
