Siccagno Nero d’Avola DOC Sicilia Arianna Occhipinti 2018 cl 75
Siccagno is the Nero d’Avola born from the concentrated grape that is precisely called Siccagna. The Nero that tells so much about Sicily, which is wild, but also fresh and elegant, tasting of red fruits. That it has something noble and aristocratic, but also melancholy like a poet or a philosopher. Which is passionate, full of human warmth and contrasts. The Nero that is the grape of our fathers and unites Sicily from corner to corner and best captures its spirit for centuries.
