Arianna Occhipinti, doesn't just make a Sicilian Nero d'avola, she makes 'the' Nero d'Avola. She has set the standards that, to us have become a benchmark for how good and how incredibly exciting a bottle of red can be.
Her Nero d'Avola, made from vines with an average age of 35 years and aged in big slovanian 25hl oak barrels for 22 months followed by 2 months of bottle ageing is class defining.
Deep red. Juicy aromas and flavors of red berries, medicinal herbs, licorice and earth tones. Long and lively on the juicy, vibrant back end.
