Andrea Occhipinti, Alea Viva

Write a Review



An intense aromas of violets, dried rose petals, licorice, cherries, raspberries, and a touch of black pepper, this wine is a fine perfume in the glass.The intense aromas and flavors are nicely balanced with medium body. From vineyards on volcanic soils on the shore of Lake Bolseno Occhipinti has been experimenting with several stylistic iterations of Aleatico. From a grape traditionally used to make a dessert wine he makes a white, a rosé, and this red wine, all vinified dry.
