Occhipinti-Nero d

Nero d'Avola
"Siccagno" Terre Siciliane IGT


40 year old, head-pruned bush vines. 40 day maceration (that’s a long time!) Neutral oak aged. Sicily’s
wine-starlet Arianna Occhipinti puts a deft touch on this full-flavored red. Full spectrum of berry flavors (red, blue, black). Bing cherry, black olive, thyme/tarragon/black tea, violets. Think of it as Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Hermitage’s love child.   

“Presents such authentic aromatic characteristics of dark cherry, balsam herb and black olive.
The non-interventionist winemaking gives room for varietal expression.” Monica Larner for Wine Advocate, January 2016
