Occhipinti Il Frappato Sicilia IGT 2016

Arianna Occhipinti is one of the young rising stars making biodynamically grown, pure wines that reflect the beauty and the charm of the Sicily. Unlike the expectations of ripe, dark and low acidity wines Sicily produces fine, soft, fresh and fruity wines. This Frappato is deep, fresh, flavours of strawberries, raspberries with some floral, roses and violets, and granite minerality. As well as food friendly, it is very enjoyable drinking alone.

I love the deep, cherry and strawberry character, the savory touch and the long, mineral finish.

The 2016 Il Frappato is another surprise hit from a vintage that was not easy generally speaking. This wine is chiseled and focused, showing a pretty mineral note that is carried forth from start to finish. The wine is delicate and finessed with small berry nuances, dried blackberry, cherry and pencil shaving. This is an elegant and graceful red wine from Sicily.
