I am pleased to report that Arianna Occhipinti’s wines have reached spectacular new heights with this set of new releases. This powerhouse force in the Sicilian natural wine movement has crafted a beautiful Frappato that showcases her evolving winemaking sophistication and expertise.

2015 Arianna Occhipinti * IL Frappato
*EMAIL DEAL- $171.00 per six pack($28.50btl)
Arianna Occhipinti has outdone herself with the 2015 Il Frappato on the heels of the great 2014 vintage. This is a wine of character and personality. It flaunts those slightly rustic edges with charm and confidence. The bouquet opens to ripe blueberry, raspberry and dried cassis. The quality of fruit shows good integrity and balance. You don’t notice any of the raw or unclean smells you sometimes get with wines made in such a natural and non-interventionist approach. The nose is pristine. In the mouth, Il Frappato delivers vibrant acidity and snappy fruit flavors. More than any other wine, this producer can claim to have produced something close to a Premier Cru Burgundy with an all-Sicilian soul.
