Top 6% wine in the world
Blend: 100% Frappato
From: Italy, Terre Siciliane IGT
By: Azienda Agricola Arianna Occhipinti
Frappato grapes, grown in red sand and chalk soil. On the nose it has a wide range of fruity and floral notes, iris, rose red, black currant, plum, pink pepper, myrtle and sweet tobacco. The palate is elegant, great acidity, red berries and spices.
Frappato is an extremely delicate grape prone to suffer from mould especially once matured. But not for the grapes of wine producer Arianna Occhipinti who spends her life dedicated to the care of her vines.
Arianna is well known for her strong and charismatic personality, producing wine since 2004, she has fought for what she believes in: to live and work in harmony with nature. A natural approach to the production is central to the philosophy of Arianna and no fertilisation or filtration is risky business in a place with dry and hot weather. But Ariana’s attention to detail and dedication to her vines ensures that all her grapes become beautiful wine.
Tasters Review – “Once this wine opens up, displays rich & slightly sour red fruits, great soft tannins and balanced acid. A truly beautiful wine.”
