Product Notes

Arianna Occhipinti Vino di Contrada PT Pettineo Frappato is a red wine made in Sicily, Italy. Arianna Occhipinti is a young and talented winemaker who has impressed many with her commitment to organic and biodynamic farming techniques. The wine is made from 100% Frappato grapes, which are grown on the PT Pettineo Contrada vineyard. The grapes are hand-harvested and fermented using natural yeast, giving the wine its unique character and flavor profile. The wine is then aged in large oak barrels for 8 months before being bottled. The result is a wine that is light, fresh, and fruity with notes of red berries and minerals. It pairs well with a variety of dishes, including pasta, grilled meats, and seafood. If you are a fan of natural and organic wines, Arianna Occhipinti Vino di Contrada PT Pettineo Frappato is definitely worth a try.

About the Winery

Arianna Occhipinti

Established in 2009, Arianna Occhipinti is an Italian winery founded by a lady of the same name. She is known for the care and techniques used for growing the Italian native grape varietals of Nero d’ Avola and Frappato. Right from a young age, she was fascinated about vines and winemaking, thanks to frequent visits to her uncle’s wine estate in Sicily. She was just 22 when she started her own wine label.

She started by creating wine in the Contrada Fossa di Lupo region, but the popularity of her wines grew so rapidly that she soon ensured that her wines reached other places such as Bastonaca, Pettineo and Bombolieri. Ever since she created her own label, Arianna has been using biodynamic farming techniques in her 10 hectares of vineyards. At her vineyards, Arianna gives complete respect to the earth and uses only organically grown grapes for creating her biodynamic wines. She doesn’t use pesticides, fertilisers, fungicides, herbicides or any other chemical product on her beloved vines.

Thanks to her biodynamic practices, she also uses very little sulphur in the wine at the time of processing. For fermentation, she depends on indigenous yeasts that are airborne to retain the original flavour of the fruits. They are allowed to then macerate on their own skins for about 30 days, before they are aged for about 6 months in traditional cement vats. This way, when they are bottled, the wines represent the true character of the grapes and the land.

The SP68 Rosso (Red) wine is the flagship wine of this label. It is made using a blend of 70% Frappato and 30% Nero d’ Avola. Here, the fruits are macerated for 15 days with their skins on before they are taken to the cement vats for ageing for 6 months. Finally, they rest in the bottle for a month before they are released into the market.
