Occhipinti BB Vino di Contrada Terre Siciliane IGT 2021

The Frappato Vino di Contrada BB from Arianna Occhipinti, is a standout among her trio of Frappato wines. Cultivated in the high limestone soils of the Bombolieri vineyard in Vittoria, Sicily, this wine is distinguished by its rich, dark fruit flavors, combined with earthy tones and a textured richness. It showcases a unique profile of bright red and black fruits with hints of potting soil, delivering a layered and approachable experience.

Arianna Occhipinti's design emphasizes the unique limestone influence, allowing Frappato to shine independently. Fresh, lush notes of strawberries, berry leaf, and florals, balanced by grounding tannins and a touch of wet gravel. The Bombolieri BB, known for its deep cherry and raspberry aromas, also features abundant acidity, silky texture, and a savory earthiness, enhancing its enjoyment.

Part of the Vino di Contrada series, each wine explores distinct single-varietal expressions of Frappato, demonstrating the diversity of Sicily's terroir and the versatility of the grape. This approach not only showcases the individual character of each vineyard but also the potential of Frappato to produce complex wines with a firm tannic backbone and vibrant acidity.
