94 points Ines Salpico ("Must-Try Red" Decanter): "Wow! The freshness and poise of this wine is such a fantastic example of Arianna Occipinti's skill as a winemaker and of the purity of the fruit she uses. This is remarkably fresh and expressive, with well defined cranberry, raspberry and sweet cherry fruit, elegant balsamic notes and charming smokiness. A delicious hint of blood orange adds a zesty lift and lingers on the long finish. (July 2022)"

94 points James Suckling: "A joyful and fragrant frappato that's so sleek, fresh and mineral. With aeration, a whiff of smoke joins the bright red cherry, making the wine even more fascinating. Long, clean finish with lovely savory complexity. Drink or hold. (9/6/21)"

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
