Occhipinti Il Frappato Sicilia IGT 2017

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.

The 2017 Il Frappato is a beautiful expression of the grape that shows grace and an almost fragile disposition. This is a lean to mid-weight red wine with a bright bouquet that veers toward red berries and wild rose. The effect is balanced and elegant in a manner that few red wines from Sicily can achieve, making it a nice pairing for a Sicilian lentil soup and some freshly baked bread. The wine shows the color and the floral aromas of a Pinot Nero, backed by the power of the warm Sicilian climate. Some 35,000 bottles were produced. —Monica Larner
