2020 Occhipinti SP68, Nero d'Avola/Frappato, Sicily, Italy. 750ml

 

True desert island wine. Arianna Occhipinti's iconic SP68 rosso never disappoints.

A mix of Frappato and Nero d'Avola. The two varietals are native to Sicily and are grown on red sand soils over limestone rock, with vines averaging 15 years old on four different sites. The vines are organically farmed and hand-harvested. The fruit is mainly destemmed and co-fermented with native yeasts in concrete tanks and with a two-week skin maceration. The wine is aged in concrete tank for 8 months and bottled unfiltered. The wine is named "SP68" for the road near Arianna's home vineyard in Vittoria.
