"The 2016 Frappato Vino di Contrada FL (from the Contrada Fossa di Lupo) shows a slightly richer fiber and looser texture than the other two contrada-specific wines that are now part of Arianna Occhipinti's portfolio. The Contrada Fossa di Lupo provides much of the fruit used across the Occhipinti line. It has sandy limestone veins of red and dark brown clay. The wine brings out red fruit flavors with some plum and blackberry mixed in there as well. There are faint tones of exotic spice that appear only after the Frappato has had time to unpack in the glass. This wine is perhaps the most immediately open of the three. Only 2,700 bottles were made. 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."
