95 points James Suckling: "This is so good to taste with vibrant aromas and flavors of sliced fresh strawberries, lemon zest and Sicilian orange. The acidity just lifts this light- to medium-bodied wine to a different level and ends with crunchy and bright fruit that is so refreshing to drink. So good that I would drink it for breakfast! Enjoy this now. (9/20/23)"

93 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "Showing lots of varietal character, the 2021 Il Frappato reveals dusty red stone, wild berry and a hint of sweet apricot. The wine is firm and tense, yet it also manages an absolutely weightless approach that makes it so easy and fun to drink. It embraces a contemporary style that would pair with the healthy foods we want to eat today, with lots of vegetables and white meats. Drink: 2023-2027. (Jun 2023)"

93 points Raffaele Mosca (Decanter): "The most famous wine from this producer, the 2021 Il Frappato requires a bit of airing to show at its best. Captivating aromas of sweet raspberries, rose petals, white pepper and thyme emerge in the glass, anticipating a mouthful of sweet red fruits complemented by zesty acidity and briny salinity. Seamless tannins caress on the long and perfumed finish. Underwent 12 months ageing in oak casks. Drinking Window: 2024-2030. (11/30/23)"

92 points Eric Guido (Vinous): "[$50/750ml list] The 2021 Il Frappato mixes dusty earth tones with dried violets, wild blueberries and wet stone to form its delicate yet enticing bouquet. It’s soft and soothing on the palate, with floral-laced wild berries and hints of citrus that slowly saturate. The 2021 tapers off long and lightly structured as sweet tannins resonate over a core of red licorice. This is an understated beauty, yet patience is recommended. Drink: 2023-2028. (Sep 2023)"

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
