Occhipinti - 2020 Rosso SP68

2020 Rosso SP68

Nero d’Avola, Frappato
Sicily, Italia

Oh Arianna. The veritable princess of Sicilia. From great genes (her uncle is Giusto Occhipinti of COS) she has carved her own formidable reputation within the global wine industry, a champion of biodynamic viticulture, her wines are enchanting. The SP68 is a reference to one of the oldest wine routes in the world, used by farmers for generations to move their wares to the coast. It’s now a highway, but it’s a gentle kickback to the good ol’ days. Her vineyards here are sat on ancient limestone, and ripen in the warmth of the Iberian sunshine. Nero d’Avola and Frappato in this blend, pure cherries, Davidson plum, licorice and thyme. Racy, wild. A wine to try, for sure.
