Siccagno - Arianna Occhipinti

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.

Ottimo vino

Grandissima interpretazione del Nero D'avola, un vino molto longevo, capace di sprigionare tutte le meraviglie sicule senza mai perdere di vista struttura ed eleganza.
Un nero d'Avola che sa di terroir e passione.
