Arianna Occhipinti - SP68 Rosso - Sicily, Italy


Frappato, Nero d’Avola

You don’t see many wines named after a road but, for Arianna Occhipinti, Country Road 68 marked the beginning of her wine making journey and so deserves a special place on her bottles. She has been making wine since her early 20s in the south of Sicily, near her home town of Vittoria. Her estate is sun-baked and rugged but her commitment to biodiversity means that it is teeming with life. “Season after season, the earth talks to me, listens to me”, she explains.

This wine is a blend of 70% Frapatto and 30% Nero d’Avola. Despite the heat of the Mediterranean, she is able to make elegant, fresh wines using these grape varieties. The wine is fermented with indigenous yeasts after a short maceration on the skins to reduce the amount of tannin extracted. It is then aged in concrete vats for six months before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Tasting notes: Red cherry, raspberry, floral. Juicy and fresh with light, soft tannins.

Food pairing: Try this wine with roasted, marinated red peppers or risotto!
