Occhipinti Vino di Contrada "BB" Terre Siciliane 2016
- In stock, ready to ship
The Vino di Contrada project was born through Arianna's empirical observation of her land, spotting specific parcels that produce unique expressions of terroir. Three wines currently exist in the lineup: PT (Pettineo), BB (Bombolieri) and FL (Fossa di Lupo).
They are released together in a wooden six pack. "Bombolieri: Here we are situated on a point with high limestone content in the soil, facing the Serra San Bartolo. Here the lands can vary from colours of deep chestnut to white, but the surface’s layer of sand is decisively lower: only 25 cm. Just below this thin layer you will find solid limestone. In a part of this contrada you will find more clay-limestone soil, visibly different with more of a presence of white on its surface. It’s here, in the Vigna Strada that this wine is born, oral and straightforward, with highly persistent acidity." [Louis Dressner]
