2019 Occhipinti 'SP68' Rosso Nero d’Avola Frappato

Sicily, Italy

If you haven't come across Occhipinti wines, now is your chance. A highly sought after and allocated cult wine label, for good reason. The SP68 is a blend of Frappato (70) and Nero d'Avola (30). 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 wine is aged in concrete tank for 8 months and bottled unfiltered. Smells of dark berries, with leather and spice. But she is pleasantly light, fresh and lively in the mouth. Medium acidity, tannins and body.

About the maker

Like Frank Cornelissen, Occhipinti is one of the hottest names coming out of Sicily in the natural wine game.

vineyard is planted to Frappato & Nero d’Avola and is run on biodynamic principles and all fruit is hand harvested.The winemaking process is natural with fermentation occurring spontaneously, no temperature control, no fining, no filtration and only minimal sulphur additions at bottling. The style of Occhipinti is fresh and pure with incredibly cool fruit. The wines are delicate yet full flavoured and glide across the palate.
