SP68 Rosso Terre Siciliane IGT 2020 by Arianna Occhipinti

Transparent red-violet in colour, with aromas of black cherry, strawberry, lavender and smoky minerality. Pomegranate, strawberry, black cherry, red currant, trace of wild marigold and a shake of white pepper are framed by tangy acidity and silky black tea tannins. Cranberry, fig and a hint of bergamot infuse the finish. Graceful, sleek and fresh.

    Eye

    Lightly turbid purple/red in the glass.

    Nose

    Aromas of wild cherries, plum and mulberry with just a touch of raspberry lift. Hints of flowers, leather, smoke, spice and herbs with wafts of liquorice, earth and mandarin rind.

    Palate

    Initial fruit awash with wild cherry & tobacco leaf supporting fruit flavours of dark plum and blackberry. Very pretty on the palate with violet-like floral flicks across leather and spice; hints of roasted meats, citrus rind and herbs.
