Marco De Bartoli is considered one of Sicily’s winemaking pioneers for his long-standing commitment to the native Sicilian white grape varieties, Grillo and Zibibbo which are produced on two separate estates: the first in Marsala, in western Sicily, the other on the small island of Pantelleria, south-west of Sicily. His belief in the value of traditional methods of production of these grapes and their wines is complemented by his equally strong belief in the future of Sicily as one of Europe’s most vital viticultural areas.
Intense pale yellow, the nose is intense and complex with aromas of citrus, flowers, sage and capers. The palate is balanced and elegant and shows a wealth of fresh fruit and great intensity of flavours with a pleasant almond note.
