Arianna Occhipinti got involved in wine at the young age of sixteen, working with her uncle Giusto at COS, in Sicily, but stands in no-one's shadow now making wine which in her words, "in its harmonies and roughness, talks about the land where it comes from and also about me. "

This wine is the one that most resembles Arianna, in her own words she describes Il Frappato - 'brave, original and rebellious. But not only. It has peasant origins, for this it loves its roots and the past that it brings in; but, at the same time, it is able to fight to improve itself. It knows refinement without forgetting itself.'

These grapes are harvested during the first ten days of October, fermentation takes place with wild yeasts and the grapes are macerated for 30 days on their skins before spending 14 months in large Slovakian barrels, it is then bottled unfined and unfiltered.
