About the Wine
Herbal, orchard-fruity, grippy skin contact white blend of Zibbibo and Albanello, kicked off with an astonishing aromatic burst. Terre Siciliana IGT is the vineyard designation.
Organic and biodynamically farmed vineyards, wild ferment, 15 days on skins (though not super skinsy in truth) six months aging in concrete. A recipe for a stunning, evocative white wine of true Mediterranean personality.
Named after the Strada Provinciale 68, the historic road that passes near to the winery. SP68 Bianco does sound better than Hume Highway Shiraz.
Arianna Occhipinti was drawn to wine at the tender age of just sixteen. It was in her uncle Giusto Occhipinti's cellar that she fell in love with the traditional way of making wine - he is one of the proprietors of legendary Sicilian producer Cos. Her quest to find balance and beauty in the native varieties of her homeland began shortly after.
Her first solo vintage was in 2004, where at the age of just 22 she made her first wine. Since then, she has developed a devout cult following for her pure, fresh, unfettered expressions of Sicilian varieties made from dry-grown, unfertilized vineyards that are farmed without chemicals.
