Occhipinti Frappato IGT 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

100% Frappato from Arianna Occhipinti's biodynamic estate in the southeastern corner of Sicily near Monti Iblei. Cooling sea breezes at high elevation help to create an elegant and fragrant wine with ripeness and a firm acid structure. Not yet reviewed; 2007 vintage rated 90 points by Fine Wine Review: ...shows great finesse with wild strawberry fruit and a round, medium-light texture, with fine intensity and finesse. Drink cool. The wine will be a revelation to those who think of Sicilian wines as dark, rustic, powerful, and alcoholic. 12.5% stated alcohol.

Fresh on the nose with intense floral notes and fine herb stem aromas framing gorgeously pure red fruits that retain watermelon-y freshness. Round in the mouth with some austere tannins up front. Rich, if not powerful, though packed with lively fresh red fruits. This offers the perfect blend of fresh berry fruit and cool forest floor in a super zesty package that finishes with a long strawberry fruit note, Ideal for summer sipping.

If you've never tried a Frappato, you're missing out. Frappato is a local Sicilian red grape variety that always seems to yield wines that are redolent of fresh raspberries. This bottle offers more than just fresh character, however: it shows elegant structure and potent fruit.
