Marabino Nero d'Avola "Contrada" 2018

Quantity Available: 0
Organic/Biodynamic Noto, Baroque, nature, wine... This is the essence of Marabino, situated in the south-east of Sicily, in the Buonivini district in the heart of Noto valley, on a latitude south of Tunis. Our vinyards extend over thirty hectares and are situated on low hills, enjoying a mild microclimate from Autumn to Spring. In Summer the climate is arrid and hot with average temperatures reaching some of the highest on the island. This is the territory that boasts of being the sunniest in Europe, with a sky that is always clear and bright. The soil is predominantly calcareous clay containing specific variants, and a chromaticity ranging from white limestone to black clay, having the best mineral elements. The altitude varies between 30 and 80 metres above sea level, and is less than 7km from the sea. Marabino uses biodynamic agriculture to cultivate its orchards, olive groves and vinyards, and all our wines are produced from our grapes. The well-ripened grapes, are selected and harvested by hand, they ferment spontaneously with indigenous yeasts, without using any product or additive in every aspect of winemaking. Our mission is to work in harmony with mother nature, by observing her laws, protecting and respecting the balance of her habitat, thus producing wines that are free from synthetic chemicals from the vinyard to the cellar, while ensuring that they are an expression of the territory in which they were born.
