Bright, dark red. Intensely aromatic nose of strawberry, orange peel, balsamic herbs and black pepper. Enters the mouth fresh and juicy, then turns richer and deeper, showing a bright strawberry quality to the mineral and herbal flavors. Finishes fruity and long, with polished tannins. This outstanding Frappato, made from 55-year-old vines, is a testament to the importance of working with old vineyards. Ian D'Agata, Vinous Media

Light bodied, red fruited, a little grapey in a pleasant way. Has the characteristic Occhipinti length and touch of black olive. Nice easy sipper.

Reductive and not showing. Never opened up. Will try another soon

Bright and fresh with medium body. Floral notes on the nose with some earthiness on the palate. This wine is light on its feet and a good food wine.

I love the general theme of the wine (light, juicy, and long) but this had a reductive quality that took away from its performance tonight

Dehydrated cherry. Luscious tart. Where have YOU been all my life. I am buying the rest of these from the market well worth the 29.99!
