Occhipinti Il Frappato

Il Frappato is produced in Sicily, (Italy), by Arianna Occhipinti. It's a juicy Sicilian wine made from Frappato grapes from Vittoria. It ferments in concrete vats with a 25-day maceration on the skins. It's aged for 12 months in large oak barrels. This light and fragrant red wine impresses with its elegance of floral scents of iris and red roses, along with fruity notes of raspberry, currant, sour cherry, and sweet tobacco. On the palate, it's smooth and agile, making it ideal for pairing with flavorful pasta dishes and roasted or grilled white meats. Available for deliveries within Metro Manila.

Winery

Sicily, Italy: Azienda Agricola Occhipinti

Azienda Agricola Arianna Occhipinti is a Sicilian estate near Vittoria. Owner-winemaker Arianna Occhipinti is well-known as a key proponent of the natural wine movement, and has had a meteoric rise to prominence since her first vintage was released in 2006, when she was still only 24 years old.

The estate consists of 22 hectares (54 acres) of vineyards planted to Nero d'Avola and Frappato, and 1.5ha (4 acres) of Albanello and Zibbibo (Muscat of Alexandria). The vineyards are not all certified organic, but are farmed without pesticides, fungicides, herbicides and chemical or synthetic fertilizers.

The winery was constructed in 2012 following the purchase of an old farmhouse with an extra 7ha of vines. It has allowed Occhipinti to move from fermenting and aging the principal red wines in stainless steel and fibreglass to gravity-fed concrete tanks.
