Variety // Nero D'Avola
Region // Sicily, Italy
About 15 km from the Mediterranean in Vittoria, Arianna Occhipinti’s vineyards are planted with Frappato & Nero d'Avola, and farmed biodynamically. The demand for Occhipinti’s natural vinos far outstrip their tiny production. ‘Siccagno’ – which is both site name and dialect for ‘good wine’ – is 100% Nero d'Avola from two parcels on white limestone soils; one being bush-trained, the other in double Guyot. The vines are 30 years old and biodynamically farmed. The fruit is harvested by hand, destemmed with the berries left whole. Wild ferment and 20-25 days skin maceration. Aged for 2 years in 3000-litre Stockinger casks (Austrian Oak), bottled unfined, unfiltered. This is special stuff.
