"The 2017 Il Frappato is a beautiful expression of the grape that shows grace and an almost fragile disposition. This is a lean to mid-weight red wine with a bright bouquet that veers toward red berries and wild rose. The effect is balanced and elegant in a manner that few red wines from Sicily can achieve, making it a nice pairing for a Sicilian lentil soup and some freshly baked bread. The wine shows the color and the floral aromas of a Pinot Nero, backed by the power of the warm Sicilian climate. Some 35,000 bottles were produced. Drink: 2019-2025. 93+ 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."
