The estate’s finest cuvée and also the rarest. An exceptional wine, truly! More info

Grotte Alte is produced from a one-and-a-half hectare parcel of forty-year-old vines. It is matured in large 25-hectolitre Slovenian barrels for four years, before continuing to age in bottles for a further six months. It is the domain's finest – and rarest – cuvée; an exceptional wine. Its bouquet is very pure and indulgent, fresh and fruity. The palate is equally grandiose: well-balanced, silky, fresh, mineral, very elegant and structured, ending with a superbly long finish. This truly great wine is the perfect tribute to Sicily. It will make a perfect pairing with grilled red meat or game.

Cerasuolo di Vittoria Azienda Agricola Arianna Occhipinti Grotte Alte serve at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Entrecôte grillée, Daube de sanglier, Epaule d'agneau braisée.

Information about domain Azienda Agricola Arianna Occhipinti

Arianna Occhipinti is a media star. At just 34 years of age, she has carved out a name for herself in the Italian wine world, and is the go-to name for biodynamic management in Sicily. Although she studied oenology at the rather technically-focused University of Milan, Arianna has never lost sight of the traditional teachings of her uncle whose small vineyard she inherited. Today, the domaine has expanded to 18 hectares, and Arianna Occhipinti is in regular contact with Nicolas Joly... great minds think alike!
