Occhipinti SP68 BiancoOcchipinti
Producer: Arianna Occhipinti
Region: Vittoria, Sicily
Arianna Occhipinti is one of the hottest names in Italian wines. Her natural wines are highly sought after with the demand far outstrip- ping the tiny production. The estate is about 15 km from the Mediterranean with the vineyards planted at 250 metres above sea level. The vineyard is planted to Frappato & Nero d’Avola and is run on bio-dynamic principles and all fruit is hand harvested. The winemaking process is natural with fermentation occurring spontaneously, no temperature control, no fining, no filtration and only minimal sulphur additions at bottling. The style of Occhipinti is fresh and pure with incredibly cool fruit. The wines are delicate yet full flavoured and glide across the palate.
Occhipinti SP68 Bianco 2018 is an aromatic and elegant white wine. The nose presents memories of Mediterranean herbs and white flowers accompanied by a fruity note that combines aromas of pink grapefruit, lychees and white peaches. On the palate it is a light and frank wine, with a fresh and almost herbaceous note and with a dry finish.
