Arianna Occhipinti SP68 Rosso 2021 Sicilia

MXN $860

Grape: 70% Frappato, 30% Nero d’Avola

Appellation: Terre Siciliane IGT

Region: Sicily, Italy

You’ll taste/smell: a vivid and silky wine, with juicy notes of sour cherry, cranberry, crunchy red fruit, and dark fruit compote – distinctively Sicilian! A little bit smoky, a little bit of a saline character, definitely very Mediterranean. Chill a bit to drink.

Good to have it with: tomato salad, octopus salad or pizza.

The Winery: Agricola Occhipinti

Arianna is the niece of Giusto Occhpinti, whose COS wines are undisputedly amongst the very best of Sicily. In 1998, Giusto invited her to help him out at Vinitaly for four days. Arianna was 16 at the time and knew nothing about wine; the experience was such a good one that she decided to study viticulture and oenology in university. This quickly proved counter-intuitive, since everything she had learned from her uncle (organic viticulture, hand-harvesting, native yeast fermentations) clashed with what she was being taught in school.

In her early 20s, she began making wines in her home area of Vittoria, Sicily. Frappato amazed her: a grape capable of making floral, elegant reds, so different from the big, ripe overpowering Nero d’Avolas that had so far defined Sicilian wine. She decided her style would be one of finesse and elegance and perfume over power. Her first vintage (2004) was released in 2006 when she was just 24. At the time she had just one hectare of vines.

Continually pushing things forward, Arianna built herself a new cellar in 2014, a huge step up from the cramped, chaotic space she used to work in. Besides the obvious advantage of having more space, it has permitted Arianna to start a new regiment of concrete fermentation and aging for both “SP68″‘s, which used to to be produced in stainless steel and fiberglass.
