Anthony Gismondi on Wine
Occhipinti SP68

Occhipinti SP68 2015

Sicily, ItalyFloral, scented, pure, with raspberry blossoms, violets, dark cherry, herbs and anise across whisper fine, spiderwerb-strong tannins and brightened with crunchy acidity. This biodynamic, naturalist lighter-bodied red is 70 percent frapatto and 30 percent nero d’avola, with 10–15 days on skins and then 6 months in stainless steel. Juicy and bright, with energy from start to finish, and a textural tugging cherry skin as lingering memory. A natural beauty, quaffable and finessed.Tasted: 13 March 2017Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 34.00 BCLS Producer: Arianna OcchipintiCSPC: 207068UPC: 878969007145
