Il Sogno Di Arianna

Arianna Occhipinti

Terre Siciliane Il Frappato 2019

Nose has ripe red cherry, cinnamon, evergreen needles, moist wood bark, under-ripe raspberry and crushed granite.

Palate has red & black cherry, dried cranberry, green herbs, faint steely notes with nice acidity and mild tannins.

A brief, 1H decant helped to get this bottle moving tonight.

A fine pairing with home made pizza, a Wednesday night staple in our house.

Occhipinti Siccagno Nero d'Avola 2013

She came on dark turning rubyesque, a spin and first kiss, dripping red from my lip to my white linen cuff, not unlike the juicy explosion of a ripe blackberry, her color and allure dancing in the decanter, then leaning closer, more warmly spilling into my glass, she dips and turns, another spin, I breathe her in and her earthen essence laced lightly but luxuriously in red and black fruit lingers and lures me to drink, her acid does a balancing act with a purple plum preponderance her tannins squeeze holding the moment, we go deeper, darker until she dives disrobing as she rolls, slides, sideslips and seduces another dance, another turn, another twist - "and the band plays on..." For the love of the juice🍷🕶🌀

PS: kale salad @ Il Palio, in Chapel Hill is brilliant! Don't miss that place when there, or, make it a destination - digging their grilled octopus, too🍷🕶🌀

Delle Venezie Pinot Grigio

From the #mysterycase. First sip is dry and musty lol. Further sips reveal oranges and anise, like a pizzelle. Not bad 😄 — 2 years ago
