Blend: 100% Nero d’Avola
From: Italy, Terre Siciliane IGT
By: Azienda Agricola Arianna Occhipinti
The Nero d’Avola grapes are grown on vineyards at an altitude of 280 mt above sea level from 35 year old vines. Deep ruby in colour with a complex nose with notes of raspberry, blackberry and prunes, leading to an amazing finish of liquorice. The palate is deep and long lasting, starts with a range of red fruits and finishes with liquorice and sweet tobacco.
Arianna Occhipinti despite her young age is already an outstanding producer in Sicily. She has always fought for what she truly believed: she has fought for what she believes in: to live and work in harmony with nature. A natural approach to the production is central to the philosophy of Arianna and no fertilisation or filtration is risky business in a place with dry and hot weather. But Ariana’s attention to detail and dedication to her vines ensures that all her grapes become beautiful wine. Certified biodynamic, her wines are always incredibly low in sulphites.
