description

Details of wine

The story of Arianna Occhipinti and her cellar began in 2004, in the area of ??Fossa di Lupo at the foot of the Iblei Mountains, where the evening land turns red and is caressed by the winds that come from these mountains.

Arianna is a deep lover of her lands and for this she respects them as if they were a person. As well as its natural wine, it loves to define it as human and guardian of its personality.

In the vineyard, biological and biodynamic principles are adopted, creating a perfect balance between the biodiversity present in the area. In the production cycle spontaneous fermentations, indigenous yeasts and low sulfur content are adopted to guarantee wines that are as natural as possible.

The Sp 68 Rosso takes its name from the provincial road that runs alongside the vineyards, a young wine obtained from Frappato and Nero d'Avola, with the use of indigenous yeasts and long macerations on the skins.

A blend that tells the radiance and freshness of this land, intoxicating and to be consumed during an evening of laughter and anecdotes, together with the friends of all time!

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.
