Arianna Occhipinti Sicilia II

2017

Sicily, Italy

100% Frappato

Many find the world of natural wine to imitate the romance that can only be produced by a fine grasp on the borders of love and respect. There are winemakers that are in love with their grapes and some lust for their own wine. Few, however, respect the place their vines grow as much as Arianna Occhipinti. To Arianna, natural wine is synonymous with uniqueness, health and sincerity; like love, a good wine shouldn’t hurt you although we all accept that pain is inevitable on the quest for total ecstasy. In the glass, indigenous Frappato shows and smells of a freshly smashed cherry in the glass, sprinkled with aromatics of ripe, dripping strawberry and dried raspberry. Medium-bodied with sharp acid, embraced by an arch of tannins that provide the backbone for this mature, yet quaffable red. Serve decanted for 30 minutes, slightly chilled with raw tomatoes.
