What a winner. The flagship wine from Arianna, it's organic and biodynamic made with Frappato and Nero d'Avola. This wine just provides so much drinking pleasure. It is incredibly balanced, and Arianna somehow manages to produce a wine that is elegant and stylish, but that keeps the rugged soul of the Nero d'Avola grape. There is a rustic core of fruit, but the fragrant Frappato makes it shimmer - it's the ideal Summer evening wine (or lunch or brunch or earlier!). 

Occhipinti SP68 Rosso takes its name from the Strada Provinciale 68, the road that passes right next to the winery, and comes from plots that are located 280 metres above sea level, composed of red sand and limestone soils. The name of a road, for a wine that is a journey, is how Arianna Occhipinti describes her white and red wines in the SP68 range; wines that are made as a kind of tribute to all the winemakers that have travelled along this road for three thousand years, first with their amphoras and later with their barrels, transporting the fruit of their labour, their fatigues and their joys, and the aromas of their land. This road was used by generations of farmers to transport their own wine to the coast. STSWine
