Tami is made by Arianna Occhipinti in Vittoria Sicily, near the south west coast, across the island from Syracuse. Arianna Occhipinti began leaning about wine when she was a teenager, studied wine making in university, but dropped out because she disagreed with the industrial methods of her professors. 100% Nero d’Avola. While Nero is generally considered to be deeper, darker and more rustic than it’s neighbor Frappato, this is a bright and lighter style.
This is a darker and more spice driven style that is more true to Nero's type. The nose shows black fruits, bramble, loamy earth and pepper. Palate has medium plus weight with moderate acid in a palate dominated by black fruits and a bit of an earth edge.
