TN: 2016 Arianna Occhipinti „Siccagno“ Nero d’Avola - a postcard from Noto/Sicily

#1 Post by Martin Zwick » August 4th, 2019, 12:15 am

Here comes a postcard from a summerhouse in the hills near Noto/Sicily. Such a pleasure to make holiday in Sicily and the product quality of fruits, vegetables, fish and sea-food is simply stunning.

On the one hand you have the power of the classic Sicily grape Nero d’Avola and on the other hand the love for Burgundy by the winemaker Arianna Occhipinti. First a balsamic character with a basket of dark fruits and then a sublime elegant Burgundy finish. Every sip is a joy! And with 12% (!) there is nothing alcoholic&clumsy or tiring. Really stunning as we are such close to North Africa. Great aging potential.

92/100
