Details

SP68 Bianco Arianna Occhipinti, Biodynamic white wine, blend of Muscat and Albanella, light, exotically fruity and elegant. This wine is named after the main road that passes near to Arianna’s home town of Vittoria, it lies in the far south of Sicily just to the west of Ragusa. It is here that she has been making wine for the past ten years under the tutelage of her uncle, Giusto Occhipinti who owns and runs the famous COS estate. The nose offers notes of white flowers, pink grapefruit, lychee, fresh oregano, and spice. It’s a deeply aromatic wine that is surprisingly light on the palate (11.5% alcohol). There’s some maceration on the skins, so you’ll get a bit of tannin on the finish along with an intriguing olive-y note. Great with all manner of seafood dishes but try with some Octopus salad, superb!

This wine is named after the main road that passes near to Arianna’s home town of Vittoria, it lies in the far south of Sicily just to the west of Ragusa. It is here that she has been making wine for the past ten years under the tutelage of her uncle, Giusto Occhipinti who owns and runs the famous COS estate. All the vineyards are worked using Biodynamic principals and the work in the cellar is measured, not pushing the wine in any way, letting it find its own space, natural yeasts, no temperature control, no fining or filtration and minimal SO2 at bottling. Many would say Arianna is now outstripping her Uncle for quality and certainly her wines are very tasty indeed.
