Creating her first vintage in 2004 at the age of 21, Arianna’s rise to prominence has been meteoric. By using natural techniques in the vineyard and in the winery, yet not adhering to traditional barrel aging requirements of the region for the SP68, she has created a wine that is very traditional yet extraordinarily original. Named for the road going past her house on the vineyard, it’s  a blend of two traditional Sicilian varietals vinified without oak. It bursts from the glass with floral red cherry and raspberry fruit laced with notes of licorice and herbs. A touch of volcanic smoke and bright, yet balanced acidity finishes this deliciously unique wine.
