    "Contrada BB Bombolieri" Rosso Terre Siciliane IGT 2016

    This frappato comes from the single vineyard Bombolieri, which is not far from the Serra San Bartolo. The topsoil is sandy and clayey and about 25 centimetres deep. Then you find bare limestone. The stone, as well as the surface, alternates between walnut brown and white. Around 2,600 bottles were produced.

    "Transparent dark cherry red. Of the three Contradas, the BB has the strongest fragrance. There is only a light, violet floral scent here, and a restrained yeast tone is added. The Frappato is reminiscent of sour cherries and also of cherry stones, autumn leaves and some dark tobacco. Here the fragrance already hints at a quite firm tannin. At the same time the Frappato remains fragrant and ethereal. On the palate, the BB shows the wonderful balance of lightness and powerful juiciness, strength and a masculine tannin. The wine is clearly the tightest and darkest of the three single vineyard Frappato. But like the Frappato of the Arianna Occhipinti, it flows crystal clear over the palate. All the quiet power and the earthy-dark aromas form the backbone behind the cool, fresh, transparent and sour cherry style. The wine shines in dark beauty." Christoph Raffelt (original corked.de)

    "From the Contrada Bombolieri, the 2016 Frappato Vino di Contrada BB appears to be the darkest and most saturated in this set of three Frappato-based wines. This vineyard is set high on a promontory with white limestone soils. The expression is open and accessible like the others, yet this wine adds an additional layer of earth or potting soil on top of the bright red and black fruit you get on the nose. This one also appears to have extra layering and textural richness. All that fruit is capped by fresh acidity that plays a big role, making this wine a nice pairing partner to creamy fettuccine. An exclusive 2,400 bottles were produced." Robert Parker
