• Arianna Occhipinti 2018 SP68 Rosso

Deep red. Perfumed aromas and flavors of violet, minerals and spicy dark plums. Very juicy and fresh in the mouth, with noteworthy salinity on the long suave finish. 91 Points Ian D'Agata, Vinous August 2019.

FRAPPATO 70% BLACK FLAVOR 30

SP68 is a road but also a young wine. Fresh and pleasant, with a delicate taste that brings with it the taste of the sun and the freshness of this land.

 It all started fifteen years ago in Fossa di Lupo. A magical place where the earth, which in the evening turns red and is combed by the wind that comes from the Iblei, leans from one side to a road: the SP68. A state road like many others, but with a special history. Once it was made of stone, narrow just over a path; three thousand years ago it connected Gela to Kamarina, it traveled - as it does today - to the roads of Cerasuolo di Vittoria and from Caltagirone it continued to Catania and Lentini. There, squeezed between heaven and earth, the line of that road also marked my destiny. On the first hectare of land next to my millstone, at Fossa di Lupo, others followed. The company has also spread to the Bombolieri, Bastonaca and Pettineo districts. Yet it is still like the first year. Bombolieri is also on the SP68. Here the vineyard spaces and hunches over the limestone basement of the district, the vines are twenty and more years old, and the courtyard on which the cellars overlook manages to trap all the solar strength of the Ibleis. Never before in this new landing do I feel I have followed a consistent path. Never as at Bombolieri do I feel that I am bringing myself past and future at the same time. It was the oldest wine route ever attested. On that road generations and generations of peasants had set off to bring their wine to the coast.  Arianna Occhipinti
