Additional Information

This wine takes its name from the shape of the vineyard "lenza", that in the local Sicilian dialect indicates a narrow and long soil. This plot rises swaying towards the top of the hill where the cellar is located. It is a four hectares vineyard cultivated with spurred cordon and reaches an altitude of 60 meters asl exposed to the East and partly to the North. The soil is calcareous gray, very rich in rock, shallow but well drained. The Nero d'Avola on these grounds takes on a magnificent balsamic note with dense tannins and a balanced freshness. It ferments in steel tanks for at least fifteen days, followed by one year maturation in the tank and six months of bottle aging.
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.
