Occhipinti Frapatto

ITALY: SOUTH-ISLANDS - SICILY RED

WS8.0Size750MLVintage2012SKU17216

Good bright medium red. Wild red berries, sour red cherry, violet and sweet spices on the nose, plus hints of blood orange and savory earthy scents. Bright and juicy on entry, then tougher and concentrated in the middle, showing less floral lift and more fleshiness than is usual with frappato. Finishes long and full, with strong iron and saline traces. Very well done: give this highly promising Frappato at least two years of cellaring for optimal drinking. Vinous-91

Worked earth, diversion, red berry and orange peel smells lead the nose on this concentrated wine. The ready, exquisite sense of taste conveys meaty harsh cherry, pounded raspberry, notes of preparing flavor, mineral and a recommendation of diversion. It's tasty, with a gritty appeal that gives it an unmistakable character.
