Having had the white SP68 yesterday now trying the SP68 Rouge - a blend of Nero d’Avola and Frappato. Previous notes still apply. Earthy with leather and herbs. Medium minus tannins and acid. Somewhat rustic and very savoury. Unique and different. I liked it a lot.

Cherry red in colour. Notes of nettle, leather, old red cherries and cow yard. Smelly but tolerable - like a lot of naturally made wines. Occhipintis other venture COS - she is the O - keep the winemaking as natural as possible shunning chemical treatments in the vineyard (they are biodynamic) and shunning cultured yeasts in the winery. The red wines are bottled unfiltered. Ultra savoury and rustic. A blend of two Sicilian varieties Nero d’Avola and Frappato. Very tasty but not for long cellaring. My daughter who lives in Copenhagen loves natural wine and is surrounded by it in that city. For me it is the occasional indulgence.

Solid. Consistent year over year. Medium. Not a ton of barnyard funk. Blew off quickly. Showed some depth too.

A groovy wine. Get a cherry coke and then remove any sweetness and that's pretty much what we have here. Unlike a coke, it's painstakingly natural in process.

70% Frappato, 30% Nero d’Avola. Medium ruby with a bright pink rim. Very reductive at the beginning. Then the explosion of fresh squeezed red tart cherry, raspberry, plum and cranberry juice. So pure and bright. Mixed with a hint of black pepper. Tons of red fruits on the palate as well. Bright tart acidity. Little tannins. Mouthwatering good. Killer wine. 12.5% alc
