2011 Occhipinti Frappato

occhipintiThis has been a cult classic for about a decade, made by one of the hottest winemakers in Sicily. On the nose, earth, bright black and blue fruit, lavender, and cardamom. On the palate, dry, medium body, bright acidity, silky tannins, layered and complex, totally reminds me of Cru Beaujolais, lots of intrigue in this bottling, sad it was my last.
