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.
  • Arianna Occhipinti worked in the wine industry since she was 16 years old, and her first vintage was released when she was just 22.
  • The first lesson she learned about winemaking was to accept and respect the wine “as if it were a person.”
  • Moscato di Alessandria goes by another name in Sicily, called Zibibbo.
  • Albanello is typically a Spanish white grape that grows in Galicia.
