Winemaker Notes

Marabino's Rosso di Contrada "Lenza Lunga" is obtained from 100% Nero d'Avola grapes grown in Buonivini district in the Noto area. The vineyard takes its name from its typical "lenza" shape, which in local dialect indicates a plot with a narrow and long shape. The vines, trained using spurred cordon, grow on calcareous-clayey soils, at an altitude between 30 and 69 meters above sea level. The alcoholic fermentation, which converted the sugars into alcohol, lasts for 15 days with the help of indigenous yeasts, followed by a long maceration on the skins. Before being released on the market, the wine refines for 12 months in steel tanks plus a further 6 months in the bottle. Marabino produces its wines following the biodynamic style, i.e. without the use of herbicides and synthetic chemical fertilizers.

The Story

Marabino winery grows orchards, olive groves and vineyards entirely organically with a biodynamic approach, obviously without purchasing grapes or wine from third parties. The harvest is manual and always when the grapes are fully ripe, the musts ferment spontaneously with indigenous yeasts without any use of products or additives in every phase of winemaking, to produce wines that are pure expressions of the territory where they come from. "What lives needs what is alive!" And in fact biodynamic agriculture is an attempt to support nature through tools generated by the life processes of nature itself. The vine is thus in a position to be in perfect balance with its ecosystem and is able to reciprocate the expression of a unique territory with its magnificent fruits.
