Azienda Agricola Arianna Occhipinti SP68 Rosso
Rosso from Sicilian star winemaker 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 Frappato and Nero d'Avola.
Another wine we sell uses the same two grapes in the opposite proportions, and is one of our best-sellers, but this is a different expression of the idea. The vines are young and will only produce better and better fruit in years to come, but are already producing a wonderfully expressive wine. Unfiltered, this has an attractive cloud in the glass, with an amazing array of aromas, from red fruit like cherry and mulberry to leather, tobacco, herbs and liquorice.
