COS Frappato 2017
Your new best Sicilian friend. Short, fat & outgoing, this exuberant red from one of the island's best winemakers. Childhood friends Giambattista Cilia and Giusto Occhipinti, uncle of the famed winegrower Ariana Occhipinti, run this famous biodynamic estate in the Vittoria region of southeastern Sicily. This frappato is pale ruby, light- to medium-bodied and exudes freshness and wild flowers. The taste is equally vibrant: raspberry, orange peel and sweet spices emerge with subtle acidity and soft tannins. Yum.
