Azienda Agricola Arianna Occhipinti SP68 Bianco
Almost orange wine from Sicilian star Arianna Occhipinti.
Arianna Occhipinti learnt to make wine with her uncle Giusto, who runs the winery COS in the very southeast of Sicily. Arianna's own winery is now a stones throw away, where she makes a range of delicious, complex and very enjoyable wines from native Sicilian grapes. SP68 is named after the road that runs near to the winery, and made from a blend of Muscat of Alexandria and Albanello.
The wine is made with a little skin contact, and therefore has a little orange tinge to the colour. This also adds some delicious spice to the rich fruit character of the grapes, making this perfect with light pastas or even tricky to match south-east Asian dishes that meld heat, salt, sweet, sour and bitter.
