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. — 3 months ago

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
