Here at The Raleigh Wine Shop we love wines with balance and acidity, which is why we love winemakers like Arianna Occhipinti. When the trend in Sicily was to create super-ripe and over-extracted Cabernet, Syrah and Chardonnay, Arianna focused on finding balance in the island’s indigenous varieties. Sicily gets plenty of sun, but in the hills near the coast the vineyard temperatures are moderate, with cool nights. The resulting wines are elegant with great depth of flavor.  This Frappato shows loads of bright cherry and strawberry with silky texture, spice and lots of fresh acidity.

Pairings: Lightly seared or grilled tuna
