This wine is, according to Arianna Occhipinti, is the one that is most emblematic of herself. Fresh, original, and rebellious, it represents the winemakers true essence.
Powerful floral notes of red rose, cinnamon, red cherry, and minerals, this is peak Frappato aromas. Juicy and fresh, the floral elevation on the palate is something to behold, in balance with tart and fragrant fruits characters. Zingy, mouth-watering acidity, sits nicely on the lengthy and joyous finish.
A lightly structured wine, this Frappato is packed full of tension, flavour, acidity - a wonderfully pure expression!
Arianna Occhipinti was drawn to wine at the tender age of just sixteen. It was in her uncle Giusto Occhipinti's cellar that she fell in love with the traditional way of making wine - he is one of the proprietors of legendary Sicilian producer Cos. Her quest to find balance and beauty in the native varieties of her homeland began shortly after.
Her first solo vintage was in 2004, where at the age of just 22 she made her first wine. Since then, she has developed a devout cult following for her pure, fresh, unfettered expressions of Sicilian varieties made from dry-grown, unfertilized vineyards that are farmed without chemicals.
