Description

Details of wine

Arianna Occhipinti is one of the main ambassadors of the Sicilian land in terms of biodynamic cultivation, convinced that only the perfect balance between all the components of nature can guarantee the production of unique and authentic wines.

Nicknamed "natural woman", she cultivates her territory of about 22 hectares in the Fossa di Lupo district with passion and respect, using only indigenous yeasts and not filtering.

The SP68 Bianco is a wine that takes its name from the road that runs alongside the vineyards and represents a journey. That of the peasants who already three thousand years ago started from the countryside with amphorae, and then the barrels, and inside the fruit of their work, the effort, the joy, still the smell of the earth. The journey of the farmers, even today directed to their vineyard, between meetings and exchanged words, under the clear sky of the Iblei.

A white with great finesse, fresh and with a marked minerality that facilitates drinking. A wine where you can find all the warmth and simplicity of this beautiful island and Ariadne's work.

Everything begun sixteen years ago in the ”Fossa di Lupo” area. A place where the land in the evening becomes redish and is brushed by the Ibleian winds and leans on one side of a road: the County Road 68. A county road like many others, but with a special past. It was once a stone narrow path; three thousand years ago it connected Gela to Kamarina, it travelled- as it still does - through the Cerasuolo di Vittoria roads hills and from Caltagirone continued to Catania and Lentini. There, squeezed between heaven and earth, that road also marked my destiny. In the first hectare of land next to my palmento, in Fossa di Lupo District, others followed. The firm grew into the Bombolieri, Pettineo and Bastonaca Districts, Yet, everything is still the same as in the first year. Bombolieri is also located on the County Road 68. The vineyard here enlarges and it stoops onto the limestone base of the area, the vineyards are twenty years old if not more, and the court on which the wineries raise themselves is able to trap all the strength of the Ibleian sun. Nowhere else I can feel to have been walking on a coherent road. Never as in Bombolieri I can feel that I'm carrying with me past and future at the same time. It was the oldest wine route ever documented. That road was used by generations of farmers to bring their own wine to the coast.
