Description

Siccagno: love at first sight!

Considered by many to be the greatest woman of Sicilian wine, Arianna Occhipinti sees her strength in the strong link with the territory; since she was very young she has been stealing with her eyes (and ears) from those who had spent so much time in the vineyard and in the cellar, both local farmers and illustrious figures such as Prof. Attilio Scienza but the crucial man was Uncle Giusto, already winemaker of a famous Ragusa winery, which brought a young Arianna to Vinitaly, initiating her to the art of viticulture. The range of Occhipinti wines is today among the most sought after and popular on the island and the Siccagno is a worthy witness: authentic expression of Nero d'Avola in purity, from vines of 40 years of age, this wine ages 16 months in oak barrels, after a long maceration on the lees. A wine that makes you dream!

Intense and luminous ruby red, on the nose it captivates with hints of wild berries in jam and Mediterranean scrub, dark and pungent hints of cinchona and citrus-like reflexes of tamarind, with a spicy undertone. Powerful and vigorous tasting, it presents an austere tannin of great personality and a quick and fresh taste that leaves space also to the glycerine softness. The finish of bitter cocoa is endless.

Try it with lamb, it goes well with a beef fillet with mustard and matured cheeses.
