OCCHIPINTI 2012 SP68 ROSSO IGT

WINE SPECTATOR 90 POINTS - “Light and elegant, with a pure, persistent mix of wild cherry and fresh crushed blackberry notes, backed by fresh acidity. The finish shows floral and mineral hints. Drink now through 2017. 1,550 cases imported.”

Named for the road going past the winery, SP68 is a blend of Nero d’Avola and Frappato made from young vines and new plantings. Many think of Sicily as a source of bulk wine, but Arianna’s are soulful and balanced, fresh and lively. The Nero imparts rich dark red fruits and the Frappato gives a high-toned raspberry note, a perfect balance of power and finesse. The wine is energetic and electric, bursting with flavors of tart cherry, raspberry and herbs and soft tannins, making this one of the best values in her lineup. This is a wine we would heartily recommend to be served slightly chilled with food.
