Poggio de Bortolone was founded by the Cosenza family at the end of the 18th century, and has been passed down from father to son ever since. The name of the estate comes from a Sicinian expression, "Puoiu ri Burtuluni", which describes an estate found on top of a small hill. Their 15 hectares of vineyards are planted across a series of valleys on sandy soils with low water retention which naturally limits the yields of the vines, resulting in rich, concentrated berries that make excellent wine. The cellar, built in 2009, is undergound which provides constant temperature and humidity control, which combined with the modern equipment, further allow the estate to produce wines of refinement and distinction.
Bortolone's 100% Frappato is from vines grown on sandy red soils at an altitude of 260 meters. The wine is fermented and aged in stainless steel in order to preserve its prisitine fruit qualities. This Frappato is a pale, light ruby color with intense aromas of cherries, blueberries and raspberries with a subtle earthiness. The palate is light and fresh with moderate tannins and wonderful concentration of berry fruit flavors.
