Occhipinti SP68 White (750ml)
AlbanelloZibibbo/Muscat of Alexandria
Arianna Occhipinti is a vigneron in Vittoria, Sicily who inherited her passion for the vine and wine at the young age of 16 when she attended VinItaly with her vigneron uncle of another iconic winery, COS. Though Arianna studied oenology at the University of Milan, she has taken a very hands off approach to grape growing and winemaking by following organic principles. She hand harvests only healthy grapes, relies on spontaneous fermentation and uses minimal sulfur.
Contrary to robust, full wines usually associated to Sicily, Arianna Occhipinti turns out mostly elegant, easy-drinking wines, like SP68. This is pleasingly fresh white blend of Albanello and Muscat of Alexandria filled with floral notes.
