Arianna Occhipinti, Il Frappato, Sicilia, IGT, 2007.
I will admit I did not taste this wine, but my friend Marcel bought it at Domaine LA ($35), and he was supposed to share it with me, but he got a little wine happy and drank it himself. I asked him for a tasting note and this is what he sent to me (see below). it's biodynamic and the grape variety is Frappato, can't say I've ever had a Frappato! And a very nice 12.5% alcohol level. Its-a-nicea.
"it was quite good. my memory was it was very pinot-ish upon opening, and then settled into a little zing, some light pepper."
