Description

"Muscatedda" is the local name of the first vineyard harvested in these areas, "first muscatedda vineyard" comes from the only native white grape variety of the Val di Noto area, the Muscat of Noto. Aromatic vine used for the production of natural sweet, raisin and liqueur wines, we wanted to interpret it in a dry version. From a vineyard facing West, at 65mt above sea level, cultivated on white-calcareous soil that reflects the light and gives the wine salinity. The white Muscat of Val di Noto, grown on these soils gives vines with a low yield, and wines with delicate aromas, typical of the "Mediterranean scrub". The ripe grapes are vinified in steel with the skins for about fifteen days. It matures in steel until the following spring with continuous Bâtonnage, carried out according to the phases of the moon.

About the producer

Situated in the south-east of Sicily in the heart of the Noto Valley (on a latitude south of Tunis), Marabino own 30 hectares of vineyards on low hills, enjoying a
generally mild microclimate until Summer with average temperatures reaching some of the highest on the island, tempered by proximity to the sea. The soil is
predominantly calcareous clay, the altitude varies between 30 and 80 metres above sea level, and high-density planting on slopes allows maximum exposure whilst harnessing the cooling prevailing winds of the region. As a result consistently well-ripened grapes can be selected and harvested by hand, and then fermented spontaneously with indigenous yeasts. The young team at Marabino’s mission is to work in harmony with Mother Nature, to produce wines that are free from synthetic chemicals from the vineyard to the cellar to capture a true expression of the Noto Valley.
