The importance of the soils where the vines are grown determines the style and taste of a wine. Only in soils with good expressions grown in suitable areas can the facets of a territory be identified, dictated by the rhythm of the vintage and by the interpretation of the producer. This wine wants to tell the typicality of the clayey soils of Contrada Bonivini. Wine obtained from the selection of the best parcels of Nero d’Avola grapes, cultivated on clayey yellow soils. The clayey lands, of pure clay, give the wines a dense and powerful texture, concentrating great richness to the taste.

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 agenerally 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.
