Tasting Notes

100% Nero d’Avola. Trained in a mix of alberello and guyot on red, sandy clay soils over limestone, these estate vines average 30 to 35 years old and are biodynamically farmed and harvested by hand, generally at the beginning of October. The fruit is destemmed and fermented with indigenous yeasts, macerating with the skins for about 20-25 days before pressing (maceration is shorter than for Frappato because Nero skins are thinner). Bottled unfiltered.

Staff Pick Notes

No moment or statement could ever really encapsulate my love for New York City; it’s been my home for the entirety of my life thus far and I wear that with honor. Arianna Occhipinti likely feels the same way about Siciliy in how she represents it with the utter transparency she shows in her wines. This Nero d’Avola comes from 30 year old vines that are trained in red sandy clay soils. This helps provide the wine with softer tannins, aided by destemming and almost two years in oak. Chili pepper, wet tobacco and black cherries collide on the nose while the palate can be characterized by dark licorice, tart dark cherry, ashy charcoal and fresh potting soil. Arianna’s wines are the ode to the place she loves.
