Not only does she come from an incredible wine pedigree (her mentor and father is Giusto Occhipinti from COS), she championed the regional grape Frappato, becoming it’s biggest cheerleader & introducing it to the world!

Equal parts serious and romantic, show this wine the respect it deserves & let yourself go.
