Cherry red in colour. Notes of nettle, leather, old red cherries and cow yard. Smelly but tolerable - like a lot of naturally made wines. Occhipintis other venture COS - she is the O - keep the winemaking as natural as possible shunning chemical treatments in the vineyard (they are biodynamic) and shunning cultured yeasts in the winery. The red wines are bottled unfiltered. Ultra savoury and rustic. A blend of two Sicilian varieties Nero d’Avola and Frappato. Very tasty but not for long cellaring. My daughter who lives in Copenhagen loves natural wine and is surrounded by it in that city. For me it is the occasional indulgence. — 8 days ago
On the sweet side but just the perfect balance! Complex, and clean. Very easy to drink. Reminds me of Italy! — 4 days ago
Clear garnet with a slight haze. Red apple, pomegranate, and brick on the nose. Firm acidity and very firm tannins intro the medium palate of red apple peel, pomegranate, and terra cotta. Very firm tannins. A no holds barred Cornelissen joint that will support your heartiest of fare. Just be aware that this isn’t your father’s Italian wine. Also, very firm tannins. Drink at one sitting now through 2027. — 13 days ago
Oh yea, ripping acidity, zesty citrus fruit and minerality reflective of the limestone soil. — 7 hours ago
Flirty aromas of blackberry and blueberry jam, blackcurrant leaf and violets come charging right out of the gate. Balsamic electricity running through a palate of blueberry juice. Gentle prickly tannins.
A lively, sapid expression of high altitude Etna nerello mascalese, ready to drink now. — 7 days ago
