Tasting note from dated 15.12.2018, Copyright Christoph Raffelt


SP68? This is the Autostrada SP68, which winds through the Sicilian countryside behind the vineyard near Vittoria, with white and blue signs marking the way. The red variant of the SP68 is a cuvee of 70 % Frappato and 30 % Nero d'Avola. Unlike a Cerasulo di Vittoria, where the proportion of Nero d'Avola must be at least 50 %. The vineyard is located at 280 meters and is characterized by terra rossa soils with chalk inclusions. After spontaneous fermentation, the wine remains on the grape skins for 15 days, is aged for six months in concrete tanks and bottled unfiltered.


Transparent dark ruby red


While the Nero d'Avola spreads in the background with notes of plums, spices and undergrowth, the Frappato prances its St. Vitus dance in the foreground. Already in the fragrance it is distinctly agile and fresh with an acidic fruit of sour cherries, currants and some blood orange. This is accompanied by the typical floral violet note and a small amount of juniper and thyme. The wine seems airy, young, fresh and earthy at the same time.


On the palate, the soft tannin of the Nero d'Avola flatters and at the same time the Frappato turns up and sings its song. It provides the fresh part, the tart fruit, the slightly tart herbal components and the ethereal floating. The wine is very juicy and fresh, can be drunk slightly chilled and even offers a slight saltiness in the finish, which makes the whole thing even more attractive. The SP68 is Arianna Occhipinti's entry-level wine. It is uncomplicated and juicy, but when you get into it, it has its complexity and it becomes increasingly clear with how much refinement and skill it was created.
