Occhipinti Il Frappato
Arianna Occhipinti is a vigneron in Vittoria, Sicily who inherited her passion for the vine and wine at the young age of 16 when she attended VinItaly with her vigneron uncle of another iconic winery, COS. Though Arianna studied oenology at the University of Milan, she has taken a very hands off approach to grape growing and winemaking by following organic principles. She hand harvests only healthy grapes, relies on spontaneous fermentation and uses minimal sulfur.
From forty year old Frappato vines planted in the Terre Siciliane area of Sicily at an elevation of 280 meters above sea level, in medium density red sandy and chalky, limestone soil. Wild yeast fermented with 30 days of maceration on the skins and 14 months of ageng in large Slavonian oak barrels. The wine is bottled unfiltered. This wine is juicy with fine tannin and vibrant acidity, bursting with raspberries, cherries and rose petals.
