TASTING NOTES

A true natural woman: this is how Arianna Occhipinti defines herself, who after finishing her studies in Viticulture and Enology decided to develop her project in her childhood land, Sicily. The Frappato di Arianna Occhipinti is made from 100% Frappato grapes, from vineyards of about 40 years located at an altitude of 280 meters above sea level, in an area with a warm and dry climate, typically Mediterranean. The grapes are destemmed and then macerated on the skins with spontaneous fermentation in 85 hl cement vats for 25 days with daily pumping over and fulling. Racking and aging in the same containers for 6 months and in Austrian oak barrels for 12 months. Frappato is presented to the glass with a bright and clear ruby red color, reveals to the nose a fragrant and refined bouquet, with aromas of violet, iris, raspberry, cherry, red currant, delicate spicy hints of pink pepper and nuances of aromatic herbs. Of medium structure, it has a crunchy and juicy fruit, wrapped by a fine and elegant tannic texture, which accompanies a harmonious, fresh and aromatic finish. It is the wine par excellence of Arianna, a wine that reflects its character and that tells the thread and sign of the territory of Vittoria. The perfect gift for the friend of the heart, which in the mouth will sound like a great "I love you". Excellent in combination with roast meat or with a first course with meat sauce. To fully appreciate its style, this wine should be served at a serving temperature of 16/18 ºC. Read more Read less
THE WINERY

Arianna Occhipinti

The Occhipinti winery is led by Arianna, a woman of extreme pride who expresses her character through a close relationship with the land of Sicily. In 2004, after finishing his studies in Viticulture and Enology, he decided to return to his homeland and cultivate a hectare of vineyard in Vittoria at the foot of the Hyblaean Mountains. On this panorama there are 25 hectares of vineyards of Frappato di Vittoria, Nero d'Avola, Albanello and Zibibbo. Arianna works in biodynamic regime in every small gesture, from the vineyard to the cellar: without chemistry, using green manure and maintaining biodiversity, without disturbing Nature. Wines are the true expression of Arianna’s love for these places, able to tell the past and predict the future. Name and address manufacturer/distributor: Azienda Agricola Arianna Occhipinti - SP68 Km 3, 3, 97019 Vittoria (RG) - Italia.
