List of products by winery Arianna Occhipinti

Everything begun fourteen years ago in the ”Fossa di Lupo” area. A place where the land in the evening becomes redish and is brushed by the Ibleian winds and leans on one side of a road: the County Road 68. A county road like many others, but with a special past. It was once a stone narrow path; three thousand years ago it connected Gela to Kamarina, it travelled- as it still does - through the Cerasuolo di Vittoria roads hills and from Caltagirone continued to Catania and Lentini. There, squeezed between heaven and earth, that road also marked my destiny. In the first hectare of land next to my palmento, in Fossa di Lupo District, others followed. The firm grew into the Bombolieri, Pettineo and Bastonaca Districts, Yet, everything is still the same as in the first year. Bombolieri is also located on the County Road 68. The vineyard here enlarges and it stoops onto the limestone base of the area, the vineyards are twenty years old if not more, and the court on which the wineries raise themselves is able to trap all the strength of the Ibleian sun. Nowhere else I can feel to have been walking on a coherent road. Never as in Bombolieri I can feel that I'm carrying with me past and future at the same time. It was the oldest wine route ever documented. That road was used by generations of farmers to bring their own wine to the coast.

Frappato - Arianna Occhipinti
Frappato was born from a girl's dream of making a wine that tastes of the land she works, the air she breathes, and her own thoughts. It is sour, sanguine and elegant. It is a courageous, original and rebellious wine. But not only.

Grotte Alte - Arianna Occhipinti
Grotte Alte is a Cerasuolo di Vittoria, made from Frappato and Nero d'Avola grapes, which takes its name from the limestone ridges on which Vittoria stands. It is a Mediterranean wine that preserves the flavor of the sea and all the air and temperature ranges of the Iblei mountains.

Siccagno - Arianna Occhipinti
Out-of-Stock
Siccagno is my Nero d’Avola, born from those concentrated grapes which we precisely call Siccagna. Nero relates mostly Sicily, that it is wild, but it is also fresh and elegant and it is red fruit flavoured. That it has something noble and aristocratic, but it is also melancholic as a poet or a philosopher. That it is passionate, full of warmth and contrasts.

SP68 BIANCO - Arianna Occhipinti
SP68, the name of a road, for a wine that is a journey. That of the peasants who already three thousand years ago left the countryside with the amphorae, and then the barrels, and inside the fruit of their labor, the effort, the joy, again the smell of the earth.
€15.00
SP68 ROSSO - Arianna Occhipinti
SP68 is a road but it is also a young wine. Cool and pleasant, with a delicate taste that it brings the flavour of the sun and the freshness of this land.

Vino Frappato - Contrada Bombolieri - Arianna Occhipinti
Last items in stock
Contrada Bombolieri is on a very limestone promontory overlooking the Serra San Bartolo. Here the lands vary from brown to white, but the surface sand layer is decidedly lower, only 25 cm. Just below are solid limestone rocks.
