In the far south of Sicily, the SP68 road runs past Arrianna Occhipinti's home and provides a convenient name for this utterly delicious natural wine. Andrea has been making wine here for at least ten years, under the tutelage of her uncle Giusto Occhipinti of COS Estate, one of the island's leading lights. SP68 Rosso is a fresh, wild cherry and raspberry-scented wine made with all organic fruit and minimal intervention in the winery. Served cool (cellar temperature) this is a juicy, bright red with a joyful, bracing freshness.
15 year old vines. Fermented with wild yeasts. Aged six months in concrete tanks. Unfined, unfiltered.
