Delicious bright & light red wine from a terrific Sicilian producer. Perfect early-evening red... can be chilled. I’m adding Frappato to my favorite summer reds list.

I check in with these wines from time to time simply to amuse myself. Yup. Beyond my brett threshold.

Another excellent bottle of this wine. Spice, deep red fruit, grip, and good acidity. Reminiscent of a Foillard gamay.

So much to please! Bright red berries but with enough minerality to complement and capture your attention.

Fresh, crunchy and vibrant with dark cherry, exotic spices and a bit of bramble. On the palate light yet with a good grip and juicy acidity. And amazing purity of fruit. This is authentic and shows real sense of place. Highly drinkable.

Lovely frappato. All the natural vibes while still being v approachable. Acid, fruit, volcanic, low alcohol

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.
