|Her SP 68 Rosso (IGT, Terre Siciliane), named for the road of Arianna’s home vineyard has gained notoriety for its lively flavor and a natural winemaking that reflects the ruddy soils and native grapes of the region.
GRAPES & METHOD: It’s a delicious co-fermentation of 70% Frappato and 30% Nero d’Avola, bio-dynamically grown and hand-harvested from three different sites of sand, clay, and/or limestone. The wine is produced with native yeasts of course, aged in concrete and bottled unfiltered.
TASTING: From the first whiff I’m carried to a wine cellar on aromas and memories of freshly fermenting fruit. It enters the palate bright with a spark, then broadens with some weight on the palate with concentrated red fruit flavors of raspberry, pomegranate and a touch of blackberry on the finish.
ENJOY: It’s a perfectly balanced wine that can be both your thirst-quencher (serve cool) and an ideal food wine paired with pastas, lighter meats and any appetizer or cheese and salumi plate.
I’d love your feedback — Did you try this wine? Other wines from Arianna Occhipinti or the Vittoria region of Sicily?
