Tami 2012 Frappato

Once again (I hope no one is getting bored!), I want to highlight a natural wine made with an undervalued grape grown in an underappreciated wine region.  Tami 2012 Frappato comes from Sicily and is unoaked and made with native yeasts.  Winemaker Arianna Occhipinti is also committed to biodynamic and organic farming practices.  It is an excellent everyday value at around $16 a bottle.

Tasting Notes

This wine opens with aromas of plum, black cherries and red berries.  The palate is definitely what I look for in a straightforward, easy drinking wine.  Light, bright and fresh with red fruit, floral undertones and healthy acidity.  I think I may have to pick up a few more bottles!

My Wine Rating – A-

Food Pairing Suggestions – Pair with simple Italian fare such a pizza, antipasta, or pasta.

  1. An exellent in value wine at $16 is not a daily and ordinary wine. If you want one to three bottles wine every week you must spent $50 a week equal $225 a month. In my opinion that wine isn’t a daily but for a special occation. I don’t disagree with yours taste notes but with the daily consumption only If you are suggesting the wines only to those who have much more money. Cheers.
