Giusto Occhipinti, one of Sicily’s most respected natural winemakers, presents us his Pithos Rosso 2015. A cuvée of 60% Nero d'Avola and 40% Frappato, from vines around 20 years old, cultivated organically and biodynamically, situated on the southeast side of the island, at an altitude of 250 metres. Vinification: grapes are harvested by hand in small crates, macerated briefly, and fermented with indigenous yeasts. Matured 7 months in barrels for the Nero and in vats for the Frappato. The wine is lightly filtered, with a micro-dose of sulphur at bottling.

Giusto Occhipinti

Giusto Occhipinti est l’oncle d’Arianna, mais il est surtout son mentor. Il a fondé ce vignoble en 1980 avec deux amis. Les trois noms (Cilia, Occhipinti, Strano) ont donné le nom du domaine COS. De trois hectares en 1980, ils sont passés à 10 ha en 1990 puis ils ont racheté 20 hectares en 2005. Giambattista Cilia et Giusto Occhipinti sont maintenant seuls à la tête de ce vignoble, précurseurs...
