Occhipinti Frappato Contrada Fossa di Lupo (FL) 2017


no added sulfur

Country: Italy

Region: Sicily

Type: Red Wine

Grape: Frappato

This Frappato comes from the single vineyard Fossa di Lupo. This is a historical site (contrada) that Arianna Occhipinti has managed since 2004. The topsoil is sandy with mineral deposits that color it partly red, partly brown. Beneath that is pure limestone. 

Transparent medium cherry red color. Aromas of dried rose petals and violets, and notes of black cherries, wild berries and tobacco. Fresh and energetic, yet complex and powerful.
