Nero D'avola

Arianna Occhipinti

Siccagno Nero d'Avola 2017

“Siccagno” is becoming so challenging to find around here anymore and I have little doubt that we can thank Stanley Tucci for that! Siccagno is Arianna’s Nero d’Avola and comes from the Sicilian name for the variety. This bottle was popped and poured, consumed over 3 days and I found this to be drinking its best on Day 3. Deep ruby color with a nearly opaque core. Medium viscosity. On the nose, dark cherry, plum, leather and dusty earth. On the palate, the wine is bone dry with dark cherry fruit, dried strawberry and earth again. Medium tannin and medium+ acid. A delicious and utterly charming wine. The more wines I try from Arianna, the deeper I fall in love. — 9 days ago

Siccari Appassimento Nero d'Avola Syrah 2019

Unexpectedly delicious! Interesting blend of Syrah and Nero d’Avola and made in a appassimento style. (Interesting for a Sicilian wine.). Soft red berry fruit aromas with a touch of sweet spices. Layers of concentrated fresh and dried fruit flavors with some funky notes. Touch of smoke on the extremely long finish. Gets more pruney the more air it gets. Love this concept. — 10 days ago

Feudo Montoni

Vrucara Sicilia Nero d'Avola 2016

Made with bush-trained pre-phylloxera vines, high elevation with small yields. Ruby with aromas of red fruits, sweet spice and cedar notes. On the palate flavors of cherry, plum and blackberry with licorice, vanilla and slightly toasted cedar. Soft fine tannins, well balanced with acidity, long finish ending with fruit and mineral character. Nice! Tasting Sample. — 3 days ago

Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico Frappato Nero d'Avola 2016

Light enough to be elegant, dark enough to persist on the plate. Really enjoyed this. Hints of tobacco that I didn’t expect too. — 8 hours ago
