On the island of Sicilia, in the south-eastern corner, is where you'll find the Occhipinti estate. Founded in 2004 by viticulturist, Arianna Occhipinti, spanning 25 hectares of certified Biodynamic land under vines, planted only to native Sicilian varietals.
Giusto Occhipinti, her uncle, is one of the proprietors of one of Sicily's most famous estates, COS. Arianna began work here at the age of 16 and followed on to study oenology and pretty quickly begin her own production soon after, beginning with a single hectare of abandoned vines.
SP68 Bianco is a blend of Zibbibo and Albanella. The nose has a lovely perfume of exotic fruits, a stony minerality, and white flowers. Light on the palate, but a little bit of tannin from the skin maceration and a delightful briney finish.
