Perhaps no other Sicilian producer is as heralded as Arianna Occhipinti. Her wines are endlessly captivating, leaving a long-lasting impression based on their transparent nature. While Nero d’Avola is a darker skinned variety capable of an imposing structure, Occhipinti’s take is seemingly dark and brooding, yet lifted and energetic.

Notes from the winemaker:

"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. The Nero which is the grape of our fathers and unites Sicily from corner to corner and it better gathers the spirit for centuries. A wine which I deeply love and since the first year it has always been with me."
