Dark candied fruit, blackberry, limestone and acid. This is a great wine but needs time to jell.

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.

Pretty fruit, silky tannins. I need some grilled branzino with this.

Earthy spice, cedar, and juicy red fruit (plums and cherries) with layers of depth with a light touch
