The 2017 SP68 is a terrific rendition of this special wine. This was not an easy growing season, but Arianna Occhipinti has harnessed the scorching heat to produce an elegantly open and accessible wine. The wine offers immediate tones of black fruit, dried cherry, black licorice and tar. Those aromas are focused, bright and united. This wine evidently does well in warm vintages like this and 2015. Bold sweet cherry appears on the close. —by Monica Larner
