"From the Contrada Bombolieri, the 2016 Frappato Vino di Contrada BB appears to be the darkest and most saturated in this set of three Frappato-based wines. This vineyard is set high on a promontory with white limestone soils. The expression is open and accessible like the others, yet this wine adds an additional layer of earth or potting soil on top of the bright red and black fruit you get on the nose. This one also appears to have extra layering and textural richness. All that fruit is capped by fresh acidity that plays a big role, making this wine a nice pairing partner to creamy fettuccine. An exclusive 2,400 bottles were produced. Drink: 2019-2026. 94+ points

Arianna Occhipinti is showing three new contrada-specific wines this year, the Vino di Contrada FL, PT and BB. All three highlight the beautiful Frappato grape from the Vittoria area of southern Sicily."
