ARIANNA OCCHIPINTI Passo Nero, Nero D'Avola Passito 2019

“Working with the land. Loving her, respecting her, talking to her. And from there finding the courage to make new experiences, to seek new routes, starting from well-established certainties. This is also a challenge. And so I reflected, and I thought that the Nero d’Avola evolution could also be the withering as it was once used to preserve grapes in winter. The Passo Nero was born, a non too sweet passito that maintains its original acidity”

-Arianna Occhipinti-

Organic and Natural Wine, the grapes are dried for 15 days, fermentation with indigenous yeasts, maceration on the skin. Aged 16 months in used tonneau barrels, and further 6 months in bottle. Unfiltered

It is a concentrated dark ruby red wine with hints of red fruit jam and notes of licorice and chocolate in the bouquet. It is sweet with a finely balanced acidity that keeps it alive until a very persistent finish
