91 points James Button (Decanter): "(70% Frappato, 30% Nero d'Avola). Inspired by the Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOCG but switching the prominent variety from Nero d'Avola to Frappato – a variety which Arianna has arguably mastered – SP68 is a fragrant and juicy wine with intense red and black fruits and some spicy inflections. Unoaked. Drinking Window: 2023-2027. Alcohol 12.5%. (5/11/23)"

Producer notes: "70% Frappato/30% Nero d'Avola. The two varietals are native to Sicily and are grown on red sand soils over limestone rock, with vines averaging 15 years old on two different sites. Two-week maceration in concrete tanks, with pump-overs and gentle punchdowns. Bottled unfiltered. 'SP68' is a road near Arianna's Vittoria estate which lends its name to her flagship white and red. The SP68 wine is essentially Occhipinti's Cerasuolo di Vittoria, without the DOCG designation, by Arianna's choice, since she feels that its quality is not regulated strictly enough."
