Arianna Occhipinti SP68 Terre Siciliane Nero d'Avola Frappato 2016

$25.95

Dark ruby. Archetypal Frappato aromas that are pungently floral and bright, complicated by hints of dried herbs and spicy red berries. Then fresh, bright and lovely, with blackberry, raspberry and delicate herb flavors that are very complex and multilayered. Finishes long, mineral and juicy. Arianna Occhipinti has the Frappato variety nailed down and rarely makes anything but a great wine with it, so this blend comes up aces, offering a ton of flavor... Ian D'Agata, Vinous Media

Cherry red in colour. Notes of nettle, leather, old red cherries and cow yard. Smelly but tolerable - like a lot of naturally made wines. Occhipintis other venture COS - she is the O - keep the winemaking as natural as possible shunning chemical treatments in the vineyard (they are biodynamic) and shunning cultured yeasts in the winery. The red wines are bottled unfiltered. Ultra savoury and rustic. A blend of two Sicilian varieties Nero d’Avola and Frappato. Very tasty but not for long cellaring. My daughter who lives in Copenhagen loves natural wine and is surrounded by it in that city. For me it is the occasional indulgence.

Solid. Consistent year over year. Medium. Not a ton of barnyard funk. Blew off quickly. Showed some depth too.

A groovy wine. Get a cherry coke and then remove any sweetness and that's pretty much what we have here. Unlike a coke, it's painstakingly natural in process.

70% Frappato, 30% Nero d’Avola. Medium ruby with a bright pink rim. Very reductive at the beginning. Then the explosion of fresh squeezed red tart cherry, raspberry, plum and cranberry juice. So pure and bright. Mixed with a hint of black pepper. Tons of red fruits on the palate as well. Bright tart acidity. Little tannins. Mouthwatering good. Killer wine. 12.5% alc
