Arianna Occhipinti Grotte Alte 2008

Red wine, 750 ml
SAQ code :  12329487
Designation of origin Cerasuolo di Vittoria
Producer Arianna Occhipinti
Degree of alcohol 13 %

Arianna’s flagship wine is the 2008 Cerasuolo di  Vittoria Classico Grotte Alte, and although all her wines are decidedly muscular in personality, this one is the boldest of the bunch. The blend is 50-50 Nero d’Avola and Frappato, and the wine is subject to four long years of barrel evolution that has  enhanced background tones of spice and tobacco. Grotte Alte shows a dark, inky color with chewy extract and powerful tones of dried raspberry fruit and blackcurrants. It offers a solid sense of  structure thanks to the mild tannins and generous fruit build-up it delivers to the palate. Cerasuolo di Vittoria is usually engineered for near-term  drinking, but this sample shows the potential for extra bottle aging. — www.erobertparker.com
