Description

SP68 is the name of a road near Vittoria that connected Gela to Kamarina and continued north to Catania. It was the oldest wine route documented. Ariana’s uncle owns the famous COS estate. Ariana’s vineyard is facing the Iblei Mountains – in the district Fossa di Lupo – 280 meters above sea level. The vineyard is grown organically with no chemical intervention. The wines are fermented with indigenous yeasts only – 15 days of maceration on the skins.

TASTING NOTES
Extremely pleasant red wine – delicate and smooth – warmth and freshness at the same time. The temperatures drop by 15 degrees between day and night. Rich tannins but not overly warm. Aromas of wild berries, hints of spice and licorice.

FOOD PAIRING
Charcuterie platter, Sicilian antipasti, sundried tomatoes, pizzas, pastas.
