SP68 is a road but it is also a young wine. Cool and pleasant, with a delicate taste that it brings the flavour of the sun and the freshness of this land.

A gorgeous yet slightly earthy mix of violets, geranium, crushed blackberry and wet stone wafts up from the 2019 SP68. It's soft and juicy in nature, balanced by tart woodland berries and bitter herbal notes. This turns almost salty through the finale, tapering off to peppery inner florals and a spritz of sour citrus. The SP68 is a blend of 70% Frappato and 30% Nero d'Avola that ferments with indigenous yeast and then refines for six months in concrete prior to bottling. This is an edgy, spicy and almost nervous vintage for this bottling, which will be best enjoyed over the next few years.
