Additional Information

from two vineyards of different clones of chardonnay bred with spurred cordon. A vineyard is cultivated on a white limestone soil, bordered by a twill (drains of water created by the Arabs), which provides the vineyards cooler and more humid temperatures, especially during the hottest periods of the summer. The other vineyard is cultivated at the bottom of the valley on a black clayey soil, that is deep and fresh. Eradicating a vineyard is always a defeat, so we decided to find a way to correct the reading of this vine in my territory. The management of the vines, and of the soil, together with wine-making techniques linked to tradition have proved how the interpretations of a territory overcome any preconception if we have the right intuitions. Eureka is a wine with its own identity, which clearly reflects the territory in which the vines are cultivated, not giving typical varietal notes but rather expressing the aromas and flavours, typical of this South-Eastern Sicily area. The grapes are vinified with the skins in steel tanks for the entire alcoholic fermentation (12/15 days), they ripe in the steel tanks until the following spring with continuous batonnage carried out according to the lunar calendar. The product does not contain any oenological additive. Yield in wine 39 hl / ha
something
MARABINO was created in 2002, by the division from Natura Iblea, an organic fruit and vegetable company owned by the family and estabilished in 1996. In the beginning we only owned the vineyards and not the cellar so we relied on other facilities to make wine for our product. In 2007 we finalized the building of our new cellar next to our vineyards in the Buonivini district in the territory of Noto. My name is Pierpaolo Messina and since 2008 I manage the Marabino winery. After completing my university studies in Siena, and thanks to the experience and knowledge of Tuscan producers who applied biodynamic farming, when I went back to Sicily I was ready to manage the company. I immediately began the journey that today leads us to produce natural wines ( free of oenological products) from biodynamic agriculture. Today we produce 100,000 bottles of wine from 27 hectares of vineyards, and our wines are exported to many countries. Marabino cultivates orchards, olive groves and vineyards entirely with organic biodynamic farming, and makes wines only from its own grapes: Moscato di Noto, Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc and Nero d’Avola for red and rosé wines. Our mission is to fully understand, through an expanded vision, the nature events, respecting and protecting the correlations and balances of this habitat, to produce wines without using synthetic chemicals neither in the vineyard nor in the cellar, so that wine is an expression of the territory where they are born.
