Region & Country: Sicily, Italy
Description: Arianna Occhipinti has worked in the wine business since the age of 16, helping her uncle Giusti Occhipinti at iconic COS winery, and founded her own winery at the age of 22. Arianna's wines are some of the most sought after wines from Sicily. Her delicate expression of the region's terroir through some of its local grape varieties is mesmerising and delightful. Fruit purity takes centre stage here with her wines almost being juicy, its tannins and acidity propping the wine well up, giving it its gastronomic-ness. Frappato is a grape that is more commonly know for its use in a full-bodied blend from Vittoria called Cerasuolo di Vittoria, though on its own produces wines a lot more reminiscent of the wines of Burgundy.
