Characteristics of Occhipinti Vino di Contrada Pettineo
Occhipinti Vino di Contrada Pettineo is an organic single-variety Frappato red wine made by Arianna Occhipinti, in Sicily, Italy.
Contrada is the term used to describe a small country district, in this case Pettineo, a historic town where very elegant wines are made thanks to its soils composed of a deep layer of sea sand with a small amount of limestone rock on the surface.
To make the Occhipinti Vino di Contrada Pettineo wine, the grapes are harvested manually at their optimum ripeness. When they reach the winery, they ferment spontaneously with native yeasts in contact with their skins in cement tanks for thirty days. The resulting wine ages in large Slavic oak barrels for approximately 22 months and rests in the bottle for two more months before being released. It is not filtered or clarified.
The vineyards this Occhipinti Vino di Contrada Pettineo comes from are around 60 years old and planted with Frappato vines, the variety Arianna Occhipinti is deeply attached to because it is the one that best represents her character. It is a grape that may seem austere and delicate but that encapsulates the personality of its terroir, of what steps over it, of what it smells of and what you can sense from this fascinating land that Occhipinti cultivates with affection and respect like nobody else.
