Biodynamic. Aged in amphorae for 18 months, revealing all the quality of the grape variety, without aging notes:
Malbec: black plum, eucalyptus, menthol, chalky, coffee roast, caramel. Opulent and fresh with a lingering finish of complexity. Very nice bottle, to be enjoyed with savory dishes as well as with chocolate-type desserts. Gastronomic !

Malbec: prune noire, eucalyptus, menthol, crayeux, torréfaction café, caramel. Opulent et frais avec une finale rémanente de complexité. Très belle bouteille, à déguster avec des plats salés autant qu’avec des desserts type chocolatés. Gastronomique.

Dark garnet in the glass. A rather fantastic nose with a distinct potpourri thing going along with a bit of tar. Light to medium weight on the palate with tart cherries, dark seeded brambles and packed with all kinds of rocks and minerals. Good spine of acid. A gorgeous wine really. Arianna Occhipinti is making serious and beautiful wines with the humble Frappato grape and I love it! — 11 days ago
Both of us enjoyed this. Definitely needed some time to open up as it was pretty funky at the outset but a nice pairing for any meat dish with some heartiness. Or on its own. — 4 days ago
