Tart, red berried fruit such as strawberry and cherry play around with fragrant fresh flowers. The smell of your lawn after it rains along with your herb garden come across the nose as well, adding to the complexity. Your palate is mirrored to the experience of your nose — fresh, lip-smacking, and savory, like eating a handful of fresh berries while taking a walk through the woods. Want a bottle that will put a smile on your face while simultaneously giving you serious wine geek cred? Look no further.

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 Occhipinti's home vineyard in Vittoria.

4/5 stars
Very enjoyable - Earthy, dark, not overly tannic. Fruit is very nice.
