Arianna Occhipinti Terre Siciliane Nero d'Avola Siccagno
100% Nero d’Avola. Two parcels on white limestone soils go into Siccagno (local dialect for "good wine"), one being bush-trained, the other in double Guyot. The vines average 35 years old, are organically farmed and harvested by hand, generally in the first 10 days of October. The fruit is destemmed but the berries left whole; it is fermented with native yeasts and 20-25 days of maceration.The wine is aged for 2 years in 3000-liter Stockinger oak botti before being bottled unfiltered.
Notes of ripe plums, black currant and spices. On the palate it is refined and at the same time full of vigour. It is a complex and enveloping wine with a lovely freshness.
