2018 Occhipinti ‘SP68’ Rosso
Her uncle and his friends at Cos may have been the first to make super high-quality natural wine in Sicily’s Vittoria region but it’s Arianna Occhipinti who has really stolen the limelight over the past few years.
Her vineyards have a high proportion of limestone, so the wines have a cool, high toned character that stands apart from the fruitier wines of the region. It’s always amazing to see the delicacy and lean red-fruit profile of this wine given that the grapes – Frappato and Nero d’Avola’ are usually far richer. This wine is the ultimate introduction to Arianna’s outstanding production.
