Occhipinti SP68 Bianco
Occhipinti SP68 Bianco
“It tastes like the land it was born from. Respect the wine as if it was a person, a person who takes with him/her a world, a history, an atmosphere”. Arianna Occhipinti via her original wine-world inspiration, Uncle Guisto, and a Milanese study in oenology, began making her own wines in the mid 2000s around Vittoria in Sicily, her home region. She adopts a hands-on vineyard approach with organically grown grapes, no pesticides, no fungicides, no herbicides and no chemical or synthetic fertilisers. Biodiversity is maintained and the natural balance is honoured. So what is the juice of her labours like? The SP68 is named after a road that links her vineyards and is a 60/40 blend of Moscato di Alessandria and Albanello, with 15 days skin maceration and indigenous yeasts. It spends 6 months on its lees in concrete and is bottled unfiltered. Down to the nitty gritty: aromatic and juicy with pink grapefruit, lychees, fresh herbs and with a subtle tannic edge over an olive-esque savoury finish. This wine has elegance and finesse with a gentle yet determined acidity. This is a wine born from respect of the land and the vineyard.

Gift Wrapping & Notes
Please let us know if you would like a specific note included with your order. We tend to wrap all bottles in paper and reuse wine cases for shipping to keep our carbon footprint low.
Shipping should be automatically adjusted depending on your postcode. Free delivery covers all Liverpool postcodes, and the following Cheshire postcodes: CH41-49, CH60-63.
Find out more on our Deliveries page.
We will look to have your delivery with you within 3 working days of receiving the order but please ask if you need it by a certain date and we'll do our best.
We will endeavour to deliver vintages as advertised but they often change faster than we can update (we're pretty slow). So, again, it may be wise to confirm before ordering if you're in need of something particular. Please note: Some bottle images may not show the current vintage.
Surcharges often apply to deliveries outside mainland England so wise to confirm before you order. Indeed, Northern Ireland is beyond us unless shipping charges agreed beforehand.
If something is wrong with your order or it's not what you expected, please get in touch and we'll sort it out. We'll look to rectify any mistakes where possible.
