94 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "The Arianna Occhipinti 2020 Frappato Vino di Contrada PT (made with old vine fruit in the Contrada Pettineo) has a unique bouquet that stands apart from the other wines in this series, especially in this warm and sunny vintage. There is a hint of purple plum, but the aromas are mostly focused on red fruit flavors with cassis and fresh cherry. I love the lively, punchy approach of this vibrant wine. It feels very much alive. Drink: 2023-2030. (Jun 2023)"

91 points James Button (Decanter): "From Occhipinti's contrada series, PT stands for Pettineo. The nearly 60-year-old trellis-grown vines are reported to be the oldest Frappato vines in Vittoria, planted in marine sands over tufa. It's the finest and most perfumed of her three contrada wines, offering hedgerow berries and lovely florality. Intense, vibrant red fruits and juicy acidity combine on the textured, airy, vertical palate, with some hints of dried cherry on the long, sapid finish. Delicious! Drinking Window: 2023-2028. (5/12/23)"

Frappato “PT” belongs to the line of wines of Contrada Vittoria di Arianna Occhipinti. It comes from the oldest and most historic, named Pettineo, which houses sapling vines over 60 years old. It shows a juicy, refined and very delicate body, enriched by aromas of small red fruits, floral sensations, spicy elements and Mediterranean hints. Alcoholic fermentation with indigenous yeast in cement tanks with contact with the skins. Aged some months in large, old oak barrels.
