This wine is unusual in that while it’s a serious proposition, it’s also exuberant fun. SP68 Rosso is a vivid ruby color, purple flecked and slightly turbid in the glass, young wine with nothing taken out. Cherry, strawberry and violet perfume leads to a bright, fresh palate. Cherry, strawberry, mulberry and cranberry are in tension with a streak of saline minerality and a hint of liquorice.

There’s little tannin but outstanding balance and texture, thanks to fresh acidity and relatively light alcohol. It isn’t a wine for thoughtful contemplation or for marvelling at complexity. Instead, it’s one where you’ll find the bottle quickly empties! My advice is to buy the most recent vintage available – it’s not that it won’t last a couple of years or five, it’s that the current vintage always has the most youthful energy and zest. It’s an authentic and exciting wine that reveals the personality of the winemaker and its terroir.
