Occhipinti Il Frappato 2020
Arianna Occhipinti is the shining light of young Sicilian winemakers; while maintaining a respect for what has come before, they are forging ahead with an uncompromising vision that makes for stunning, highly sought after wines.
Vibrant, juicy, invigorating frappato, full of life. This is the kind of wine Arianna sees more of herself in, and it is truly special.
“Il Frappato stems from a dream which I had when I was a girl to make a wine that knows the land that I work, the air I breath, and my own thoughts. It is bitter, bloody and elegant. That is Vittoria and the Iblei Mountains. It is the wine that most resembles me, brave, original and rebellious. But not only. It has peasant origins, for this it loves its roots and the past that it brings in; but, at the same time, it is able to fight to improve itself. It knows refinement without forgetting itself.” - Arianna Occhipinti
