Two Glasses, Gambero Rosso: "In just over three decades Arianna Occhipinti has become an icon of Sicilian wine, loved for her talent, stubbornness and passion. But above all, she's loved for her good, indeed outstanding, wines. They are marked by their strong personality, authenticity, originality, and a refusal to conform. In short they are 'Arianna's wines'... We very much aappreciated the juicy and fleshy Frappato '18, a vibrant, meaty and fragrant wine redolent of ripe cherries and sweet Asian spices. It just missed out on Tre Bicchieri. (2021)"
Producer notes: "Il Frappato stems from a dream which I had when I was a girl to make a wine that knows the land that I work, the air I breath and my own thoughts. It is bitter, bloody and elegant. That is Vittoria and the Iblei Mountains. It is the wine that most resembles me, brave, original and rebellious. But not only. It has peasant origins, for this it loves its roots and the past that it brings in; but, at the same time, it is able to fight to improve itself. It knows refinement without forgetting itself." -Arianna Occhipinti
