Characteristics of Occhipinti Vino di Contrada Bombolieri

Occhipinti Vino di Contrada Bombolieri is an organic single-variety Frappato red wine, made by Arianna Occhipinti, in Sicily, Italy.

Occhipinti Vino di Contrada Bombolieri is one of the three wines in the Vino di Contrada series, three interpretations of the Frappato variety. These are wines that come from single plots, in this case, from the Bombolieri contrada, which is located in a raised area with a view of the Serra San Bartolo and has highly calcareous soils that range from brown to white in colour. Of the three “contrade”, this is the one with the finest surface layer of sand, with only 25 centimetres. Just below lie solid limestone rocks. This area produces floral, frank and highly acidic wines.

The grapes used to make Occhipinti Vino di Contrada Bombolieri are harvested manually and fermented in stainless steel tanks with their native yeasts. The resulting wine ages for 22 months in 600-litre barrels. It is bottled without clarifying or filtering and rests for a short time in the winery before being released.

Of the three “contrade” wines, Bombolieri is the most dense and dark with the most intense aromas.

Despite being young, oenologist Arianna Occhipinti has earned her reputation on the international wine scene thanks to her working philosophy of producing sincere, transparent wines that reflect the landscape and character and that also show her own personality. Occhipinti was mostly revived through the Frappato variety that she is so fond of and that she uses to produces these three estate wines. Arianna takes care of her vineyards by respecting nature, as if they were people, and intervening as little as possible. The result? Wines that are delicate and precise jewels that reflect the essence of their esteemed Sicilian land.
