Arianna Occhipinti Frappato 'Contrada Pettineo' 2016Regular price £57.00
Vittoria - at Sicily's south-eastern tip - is a world away from Etna's slopes and the media spotlight. This hot, rugged terrain is known for Marsala and bulk wine made from international blends. But then there's young, fiercely anti-establishment winemaker Arianna Occhipinti, determined to prove that there's more. 'Contrada Pettineo' comes from a single vineyard of 60-year-old Frappato vines grown at 280m elevation and is crammed with silky strawberry and red cherry notes tempered by bright acidity.
