Arianna Occhipinti’s white Sicilian blend of 60% Moscato di Alessandria (also known as Zibibbo) and 40% Albanello is as captivating and refreshing as a field of flowers after the first Spring rain. The vines thrive on a mixture of chalk, sand and limestone prior to being vinified in concrete for 6 months. This wine was named after road SP68, because wine is about the journey after all.
