OCCHIPINTI   SP68
A lively, medium-bodied red, with bright and brambly black raspberry and boysenberry fruit and orange zest and ground white pepper notes. Lightly chewy on the herb-laced finish. Frappato and Nero d'Avola. Drink now through 2024.

70% Frappato/30% Nero d'Avola. The two varietals are native to Sicily and are grown on red sand soils over limestone rock, with vines averaging 15 years old on four different sites. The vines are organically farmed and hand-harvested. The fruit is mainly destemmed (4% stem inclusion in the upcoming 2017 vintage) and co-fermented with native yeasts in concrete tanks and with a two-week skin maceration. The wine is aged in concrete tank for 8 months and bottled unfiltered. The wine is named "SP68" for the road near Arianna's home vineyard in Vittoria.
