Giusto Occhipinti, one of Sicily’s most respected natural winemakers, presents us his Nero di Lupo 2016. A 100% Nero d’Avola cuvée, from vines cultivated organically and biodynamically, situated on the southeast side of the island, at an altitude of 220 metres. Vinification: grapes are harvested by hand in small crates, destemmed, macerated 10 days, and fermented with indigenous yeasts. Matured 24 months in cement vats and in amphorae, the wine is lightly filtered, with a micro-dose of sulphur at bottling.
Giusto Occhipinti is Arianna’s uncle, but above all he is her mentor. He founded this vineyard in 1980 with two friends. From the first letters of their three names (Cilia, Occhipinti, Strano) came the name of Domaine COS. From three hectares in 1980, they grew to 10 ha in 1990, then they acquired a further 20 hectares in 2005. Giambattista Cilia and Giusto Occhipinti, who now run the estate...All wines
