2013 Azienda Agricola Arianna Occhipinti SP68 Sicilia Rosso IGT
GIRL POWER! I am a huge fan of Arianna Occhipinti and everything she makes because she is awesome. A young female winemaker in a male-dominated industry, Arianna is a real trail-blazer. Black fruit, aged balsamic, clove, cedar box olive tapenade, purple flowers, and a hint of cola. Grippy tannins with nice acidity. Blackberries, black currants, and anise on the palate.
Frappato, Nero d’Avola
FAVORITE! LOVE THIS BOTTLING.
I’m getting married. I didn’t want to tell you over the phone. It’s a girl.
