2021 Occhipinti SP68 Rosso


Arianna Occhipinti, a revered Italian wine producer with a growing global following, cultivates 18 hectares of certified organic native grape varieties. Her journey began tending two hectares of vines on her parents’ estate during her university days, where she was disheartened by the heavy reliance on chemistry and laboratory work. In contrast, her uncle Giusto Occhipinti of the renowned Sicilian COS estate embraced natural winemaking, a philosophy Arianna came to embrace wholeheartedly. Her wines are characterized by an earthy, almost unfiltered quality, emphasizing finesse over power.

Nero d’Avola takes center stage in Arianna’s winemaking, prominently featured in her SP68 Rosso blend, complemented by the wonderful Sicilian variety, Frappato. This red wine delights with enticing aromas of wild cherries, plum, mulberry, and a hint of raspberry lift. On the palate, the fruit-forward introduction showcases wild cherry wrapped in tobacco leaf, supported by dark plum and blackberry flavors. The wine possesses a delicate charm. Delightfully lively and delicious, it culminates in a lingering finish supported by ripe, fine-grained, gravelly tannins. A truly exceptional and enjoyable drinking experience!
