Alea Viva Rosso, Andrea Occhipinti, Organic Aleatico, Expressive & aromatic, hints of Raspberry, liquorice, cinnamon and pepper make the palate tingle with excitement. This delicious little natural wine from the unsung Lazio region of Italy. Is a superb example of the energy one can find by making wines naturally. The area of this small farm is located about 15 km from the Tuscan border. The region is known for one of the mainstay wines of the cheap and cheerful Trattoria, the Est Est Est! The wines from Occhipinti are nothing like that though, they are wild and fascinating and very very good. The Alea Viva Rosso is a rare example of dry Aleatico. Usually this wine is sweet but we prefer it this way.
