Arianna Occhipinti is a young winemaker from Vittoria, in the south-eastern tip of Sicily. In a region often associated with Marsala and with producing bulk quantities of full- fleshed, plummy and ripe reds made for export and blending, Arianna Occhipinti’s wines are non-conformist and highly atypical for the region. In 2004 she bought a hectare of land and implanted her first vineyard.
Today the farm is larger, with 15 hectares of olive groves and vineyards of 5, where varieties typical of the area are cultivated: frappato, nero d’Avola, cerasuolo di Vittoria and zibibbo. The naturalness of the production is central in Arianna’s philosophy : no fertilization, a tillage in early summer, fermentation, maceration and aging with natural yeasts grapes, no filtration. Her Natural and Biodynamic wines respect, in part, her character: mysterious, earthy and intriguing.
A 100% Frappato cuvée from organically grown vines. The parcels are north facing at an altitude of 300 metres, and the grapes are treated to Arianna’s respectful approach to vinification, with a focus on freshness. Natural vinification: a 50-day maceration with indigenous yeasts, and juices handled by gravity. Matured 14 months in casks that have seen several wines, neither filtered nor fined.
A nose with notes of raspberries and spices. Palate: a wine on a high wire, rich and expressive, between fluidity and power. It’s a lovely stroll through the vineyard, this Frappato.
