Whoa. Amazing expression of terroir here. Wouldn't be able to describe this as anything else in blind tasting. Earthy, crunchy, wet stone, red fruit aromatics, gripping tannin, singing acidity. The whole Italian package.

Wow. Wonderful balance of freshness & tart red berry fruit from the Frappato with intense black fruit & spice coming through from the Nero d'Avola. Savoury developing notes give this wine amazing complexity. Arianna Occhipinti never disappoints.

Arianna! Wow. Brought this back from Berlin. 2008. Took a few hours to open. Developing some super tasteful secondary notes, toasted almond behind the poached red fruit stylings. Beautiful work!

This wine is perfect. Floral and bright yet firm and intense.
