From our most recent Flash Sale:
“The 68 is county road like many others, but with a special past. It was once a stone narrow path; three thousand years ago it connected Gela to Kamarina, it travelled- as it still does – through the Cerasuolo di Vittoria roads hills and from Caltagirone continued to Catania and Lentini. It was the oldest wine route ever documented. That road was used by generations of farmers to bring their own wine to the coast.
Arianna Occhipinti is the superstar of the Sicilian wine world. The “Natural woman”, as she likes to be described, farms a unique piece of land in Vittoria, not too far from where my grandfather Pietro was born.
SP68 is 70% Frappato and 30% Nero d’avila: cool and pleasant, with a delicate taste that it brings the flavour of the sun and the freshness of the land. “Il Frappato” is very juicy and elegant at the same time, a great representation of this incredible grape.
Then, 3 different terroir expressions through the Frappato grape: the elegance of Contrada Pettineo, the power of Contrada Bombolieri, the fruit and the salinity of Fossa di Lupo.”
