Grotte Alte Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico Frappato Nero d'Avola 2012

Sweet cherry, iron, grippy tannins. Slightly softer and sweeter the second night, but still relatively wound up. Perplexing wine given my experience with her style. Not sure when to try the next bottle of this. — 12 days ago

Terre Siciliane Il Frappato 2016

Occhipininti’s wines are part of the zeitgeist but are also incredibly well balanced and not overly avant garde or divisive.

Il Frappato is lucid ruby and her best expression by a long shot. Beautifully restrained red fruit and subtle wood doused in minerals. Exceptional texture - soft fruit with big grip.

Terre Siciliane Frappato 2016

I pretty much love every Ariana Occhipinti touches. Second time with her Tami’ project. It’s murky but cohesive. Stems, minerals, red fruits, and good acid all in excellent balance. — 3 months ago

SP68 Bianco Terre Siciliane Albanello Muscat of Alexandria 2017

An orange beauty here with floral aromatics. Lots of peach on the palate with a soft earthiness on the finish. Orange peel and a touch of honey in a cloudy glass for drinking now. Great entry level, skin contact white from a stellar producer. — 25 days ago

Caldera Lazio Rosso Grechetto Rosso 2015

This was an interesting departure for the evening. Juxtaposed to the Morgado. This was old world with a big O. Mineral-driven, earthy nose. On the palate, it displayed smoke, along with volcanic soil notes. Pomegranate fruit displays tension, along with a high degree of acid. Comes across as firm and edgy. Squeaky clean finish. 100% old world - Elements Restaurant, NJ. — 2 months ago
