Region: Sicily, ITA
Variety: Nero d'Avola, Frappato
SP68 Rosso Arianna Occhipinti, a blend of Nero d'Avola and Frappato, light, fruity, elegant. This wine is named after the main road that passes near to Arianna’s home town of Vittoria, it lies in the far south of Sicily just to the west of Ragusa. Wild cherries, plum and mulberry with just a touch of raspberry lift. There are hints of flowers, leather, smoke, spice and herbs with wafts of liquorice, quite a lot you can pick out of this wine. But overall, it is the freshness that defines it, you could serve slightly chilled, it would go very well but there is enough darkness and savoury complexity to do a good 'Arrostito' as well.
