Arianna Occhipinti is a in the midst of a meteoric rise to prominence. She started making her own wine with just 1 hectare of abandoned vines in the commune of Vittoria. Over the years, she has progressively expanded the estate by replanting 10 hectares of the region’s indigenous Frappato and Nero D’Avola in selection massale. A few years later, she was able to start renting 50 year old Frappato and 45 year old Nero D’Avola vines, both independently bottled as single varietal/vineyard cuvées.
