Occhipinti - SP68 Bianco - Sicily (2021)
A fresh white wine with a strong personality: it expresses aromas of flowers and white fruits, citrus fruits, balsamic and vegetal notes for a lively, saline, mineral bite.
The SP68 is the state road that she travels that road every day to get to her vineyards. Arianna only works with vines native to the area, this natural white wine is in fact made from a blend of 60% Moscato di Alessandria and 40% Albanello, from vines with an average age of 15 years located at an altitude of around 280 m above sea level. All production steps follow biodynamic and sustainable farming methods: fermentation is spontaneous with indigenous yeasts, and is carried out in 85 hl cement tanks for 12 days with daily pumping over and punching down.
The producer prefers materials such as wood or cement rather than steel, which favour small oxygen exchanges with the outside and thus an initial evolution of the wine, which remains to refine in these tanks for about six months. After a further month of bottle ageing, bottling takes place without any clarification or filtration.
