2019 Barraco Fior di Rosso

Sicily, Italy

Spicy Sicilian red made from the local Perricone grape. Earthy, pure and just lightly tannic.



About The Wine

Attractive mid-weight red from the Marsala wine region in the western tip of Sicily. The area is renowned for fortified wines but it is also the home of the now-rare Perricone red grape, which was once the most-widely planted grape on the island.

About Barraco

Nino Barraco is located in the north-west of Sicily, in Marsala, right on the coast. He took over his family's vineyard in 2004, converted them to organics, and now works with no sulphur additions to his wines, along with no filtration, clarification or stabilisation. His wines are pure, naked Sicily.

His vineyards are planted to local Sicilian grapes - Grillo, Catarratto, Zibibbo, Nero d' Avola and Perricone, and they can be found dotted along a wide stretch of Sicilian coastline.

Additional Info

From The Importer

The wines from Nino Barraco upend many popular conceptions about what constitutes a wine from Marsala. Instead of the usual sweet or sticky styles that are associated with the area, his wines are savoury, full of herbs, dry & pleasantly salty. Purity is the essence of this project. The cantinas first harvest was only in 2004 but the wines have a raw precision to them, with a depth & personality suggestive of a much longer history. All fermentation is spontaneous and long macerations tend to be favoured. None of the wines are filtered or clarified with additions of So2 being phased out. Nino's wines celebrate grapes indigenous to Marsala - catarratto, grillo, zibibbo, nero d'avola, pignatello & milocca.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.
