Every vintage of this wine has feeling, has life and even a pulse. It speaks of the Sicilian terroir the way a Sicilian speaks about life - animated. Nero d'Avola and Frappato combine to produce a plump fruited and dried herb mix of flavour coupled with fleshiness and zippy acidity on the palate. Don't get caught up in the descriptors, you'll miss the point and the feeling. Please understand that this wine can contain a slight spritz at times due to it's carbonic fermentation whereby CO2 exists in higher levels in the finished wine. Decanting, a little shake and patience will diminish the spritz. - Chris L

Importer Note:

Arianna Occhipinti is one of the hottest names in Italian wines. Her natural wines are highly sought after with the demand far outstrip- ping the tiny production. Great Roman wine lists like Casa Bleve, Settembrini & Enoteca Costantini are fervent supporters of her great wines. The estate is about 15 km from the Mediterranean with the vineyards planted at 250 metres above sea level. The vineyard is planted to Frappato & Nero d’Avola and is run on bio-dynamic principles and all fruit is hand harvested. The winemaking process is natural with fermentation occurring spontaneously, no temperature control, no fining, no filtration and only minimal sulphur additions at bottling. The style of Occhipinti is fresh and pure with incredibly cool fruit. The wines are delicate yet full flavoured and glide across the palate.
