So...transparently volcanic! Ash, smoke along with fresh steak tartare, herbs. Dark berry fruits play a secondary role. Still very tannic, but also very transparent. Wow. Really excited to see how this evolves

I think this wine was really good when paired with pasta and rich Italian sauces. It holds up to the flavors we long for when we want an Italian meal. This vintage may be better than other years. — 10 days ago
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. — 18 days ago
