SICILY'S MOST IN DEMAND: OCCHIPINTI NEW RELEASE 
Who makes the most exciting Italian wine under $100? For my money, it's Arianna Occhipinti. Since purchasing vines in 2011, she's quickly ascended to "rockstar winemaker" status. After her appearance on Stanley Tucci's Searching for Italy, the public quickly got wise to what wine geeks already knew, making her wines some of the hardest to get bottles in their price range. 

The most refreshing aspect of her winemaking is that there is never a formula. She's a natural winemaker that doesn't bow to dogma, a University trained oenologist who doesn't filter any of her wines. Her SP68 Rosso is a classic example of why she's adored by the natty wine crowd and traditional drinkers alike. It's unfined and unfiltered, layering fresh strawberry, and raspberry over pink peppercorn notes with any brett taking a backseat to pure fruit and herbs. A personal favorite, the orange SP68 Bianco plays a similar trick. Zibibbo and Albanello sit on skins for 15 days for a gorgeous kaleidoscope of orange blossom, musky white pepper, and ripe peach, with faint notes of bruised apple and almost no VA to speak of. The through-line of all the wines is natural wine expressiveness with precise fault-free fruit in the bottle. Truly dazzling wines that, to us, embody the future of both Italy and the natural wine movement. -WP
