Perhaps no other Sicilian producer is as heralded as Arianna Occhipinti. Her wines are endlessly captivating, leaving a long-lasting impression based on their transparent nature. Despite its lifted nature and sunny disposition, Occhipinti’s Frappato is equally as impacful as her other cuvées. Bright notes of black raspberries, red cherry compote and rose water jump out of the glass with touches of cinder, white pepper and hay in the background. The acid is energetic and moves along a gorgeous mineral-forward silky-juicy texture before a mild dusty tannic bite introduces a fruity, smoky, slightly salty and lengthy finish. Quite the achievement for a wine to be as quaffable or as cerebral as you want it to be.
