Additional Information

Francamente me ne infischio: Franc a mente, out of any pattern, regardless of everything and doing what we like, this makes us feel free! After various tests we found a way to obtain an unprecedented product, demonstrating that, if we have the right intuitions, sometimes the interpretations of a territory exceed any preconception. Cabernet Franc is a variety that has always been present in the company, but we have never wanted to bottle. We have finally found the way to make wine out of it highlighting its characteristics in this area. The vineyard lays at 50 meters above sea level, is cultivated on cretinous soils and limestone lands, and exposed to North West, more protected from the hot sun. To confer delicate aromas, the grapes are vinified in whole bunches with semi-carbonic maceration with a part of chardonnay grapes for about a week, followed by pressing. It ferments in steel tanks where it matures until the following spring with continuous Bâtonnage, carried out according to the lunar phases. It does not contain any oenological additive. Yield in wine 22 hl / ha.
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.
