Wines Red

Sicily magical place, where the scents, the colors, the flavors of a unique land dance with life, envelop you in an irresistible and inebriating atmosphere. Centuries of delicacies to be tasted slowly.

Nero d’Avola is Sicily’s oldest native grape and rightly deserving of the high acclaim which it now receives.
Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio are smaller players amongst Sicily’s leading red grapes but are key natives around Mount Etna. The two are blended to create Etna Rosso.
Cerasuolo di Vittoria, which blends Frappato and Nero d’Avola, is more famous in the south east around Ragusa.
Other red grapes include Calabrese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah (originally from southern France).

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.

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.

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.
