Everyone Remembers Their First Frappato. You don’t need to have heard of it, or to know that it’s famed for being Sicily’s most ethereal red grape -- you just need to be a sentient human being, capable of experiencing pleasures both visceral and aesthetic. (Yes, aesthetic! Look at that color!) And starting here is like starting at the top. Giusto Occhipinti is the benchmark producer in Sicily's Vittoria appellation, and one of the most important producers in all of Sicily, if not Italy as a whole. Dried strawberries, roses, burnt orange peel, hints of leather, and a body that veers between light and medium, sometimes in the same taste. Tangy, crisp, mineral, deep and beguiling.
