Arianna Occhipinti Nero d'Avola 'Siccagno' 2012
The Queen of Sicilian wine, Occhipinti wines reflect their place as well as transcend place, taking the wines to a level of superstardom as far as the best wines of the world go.
This is an elegant and silky Nero d'Avola, with fine and ripe tannin that support a medium body wine showing fresh and bright red and blue fruits, florals, earth and minerality, finishes with an echo of acidity and those fine tannin trailing.

Showing much better than the 2012. Color was vibrant. Great mix of fresh blue and red fruit as well as white pepper and herbs. Palate was restrained and well structured with a hint of sourness. More drying than unctuous. Fine finish. #passopisciaro #etna #mtetnawine #sicily #italy #nerellomascalese #ctbucklinwine — 7 months ago
