Occhipinti + Terre Magazine Gift Set
"Italy also cracked me open, located something inside I didn’t know I had—an aptitude, an appetite, a new and unquenchable thirst that had me on the hunt. Besides sprouting my youthful insolence, that trip planted the seeds for something larger, a force that drove me down a path seeking relentlessly to know the whole story, taste the reason why, find the origin of anything that caught my eye and passed my lips."
To have spent time with Arianna in Sicily was as formative as it's been to follow her wines for the past ten years. In this issue of Terre, I'm so honored to have contributed a personal essay on my recent trip, and include a bottle of the impossible-to-get, highly coveted Grotte Alte. Arianna makes one barrel of this Cerasuolo per vintage, and it's the wine that's referenced in this piece. You can only read the article in print, and you can probably only get the wine here! Do. Not. Miss!
