The Marabino philosophy is to work in harmony with Mother Nature, by observing her laws, protecting and respecting the balance of her habitat, thus producing wines that are free from synthetic chemicals from the vineyard to the cellar, while ensuring that they are an expression of the territory in which they were born. Marabino uses biodynamic agriculture to cultivate its vineyards.
The Nero d’Avola vines for the Rosso di Contrada Parrino grow in Marabino’s Buonivini calcareous clayey vineyards outside Siracusa in South-eastern Sicily in a hilly area at an altitude of only 66 m and situated only 7 km. from the sea, which balances the hot climate. The vines have an age of more than 20 years with roots digging deep underground and conferring the concentration and richness of salty and mineral elements, giving this wine considerable breadth.
