A great wine which could be served slightly chilled (which gives it a different, less complex character).  Hints of flowers, leather, smoke, spice and herbs with earthy, liquorice undertones.  There is an initial explosion of wild cherry fruits which calms to reveal many layers of flavour.   Arianna, the winemaker, produces this wine under the tutelage of her uncle, Giusto Occhipinti who owns and runs the famous COS estate.   SP68 is the name of the main road that passes through Ariannas home town of Vittoria, where she has been making wine for the past 10 years following entirely biodynamic principles.

A delicate goats cheese – not too goaty though!
