The Arianna Occhipinti 2015 SP 68 represents a blend of Nero d'Avola and Frappato. Like Il Frappato, I am similarly impressed by this wine. It shows a solid approach and good foundations that put it into a class of its own among natural wines. Wild berry and cassis aromas are presented but you also get subtle tones of anise seed and dark cola. Dusty and elegant mineral notes also appear. In its essence, this wine is very elegant and feminine. —by Monica Larner

A wine with clarity and intensity, defined by a very chalky, lemon-rind and blueberry character. Medium to full body, a dense center palate and a flavorful finish. Always like this. From biodynamically grown grapes.
