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.
