You cannot talk about Sicilian wine without talking about Occhipinti. Helmed by the extraordinary Arianna Occhipinti, this winery has drawn a spotlight to Vittoria in southeastern Sicily. The niece of Giusto Occhipinti, who cofounded nearby COS winery, she released her first wine when she was only 22! Beginning with a mere one hectare of abandoned vines, today Arianna has 18 hectares of vineyards. Her adherence to organic and biodynamic viticulture, and deft touch with native grape varieties such as Frappato, result in wines of intense clarity and typicity. Unlike many conventional producers, Arianna avoids the seasoning of new oak barrels.

This crisp and aromatic white wine is a blend of 40% Albanello and 60% Moscato de Alejandría/Zibibbo grapes from 15 year old vines. Both grape varieties are indegenous to Sicily. The fruit is destemmed and co-fermented with native yeasts in concrete vats. Allowed to macerate on skins for 2 weeks, it was aged in concrete for 8 months and bottled unfiltered.

Light straw yellow in colour, the SP68 Bianco has aromas of ripe peaches, orange blossoms, and wild Mediterannean herbs. Medium bodied with crisp acidity, the palate has flavours of apricots, blood oranges, and honey. The finish is dry and lush. An incredibly well balanced white wine with enticing aromas and flavours.
