Wine dedicated to the Marabino tower, located in the estate Marabino, that is now a splendid relais, is the oldest and most significant building in the territory between Pozzallo and Ispica and its origins date back to the Middle Ages. The vineyard, in the estate Marabino, is exposed to the West to Spurred Cordon, on calcareous white soils at 50 meters above sea level. The low yield, the light, the winds and the warmth of the place give the Moscato Bianco grapes an original typicality that orbits on the fragrance and finesse. The grapes, harvested and well mature, are placed on the racks of our “baglio”, in white stone of Modica, giving it the light and the heat of August, necessary for the drying of the bunches. It is vinified with the skins, it ferments in steel tanks, then the fermentation is interrupted by the use of cold temperature. It matures in steel tanks until the spring following the harvest. Sweet wine, delicate, well balanced, never cloying.

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.
