2018 Occhipinti 'Il Frappato'

Sicily, Italy

Made from 100% Frappato, the Sicilian special known for it's extreme 'grapeiness' flavours. This one is complex and elegant. Light in colour and light-bodied, strong cherry, raspberry and white pepper feel. It will constantly morph in your glass. Moving from spice, to smoke to tea leaves. lingering and complex yet very elegant. With a historically bad rap as a blending grape, Frappato in this bottle, is something to be reckoned with.

About the maker

Like Frank Cornelissen, Occhipinti is one of the hottest names coming out of Sicily in the natural wine game.

vineyard is planted to Frappato & Nero d’Avola and is run on biodynamic principles and all fruit is hand harvested.The winemaking process is natural with fermentation occurring spontaneously, no temperature control, no fining, no filtration and only minimal sulphur additions at bottling. The style of Occhipinti is fresh and pure with incredibly cool fruit. The wines are delicate yet full flavoured and glide across the palate.
