The real big challenge for the company is to show that the wine produced in Marsala, where vines have existed for thousands of years, will continue to have a future in the good living room of world wine. His idea of wine finds inspiration in the rural tradition feeding on familiar know-how and the result of a passion for natural wine and of faith in the variability of nature.

The result is not a perfect wine, but a wine recognizable by its personality and diversity. The goal is to be able to give life to wines that are able to thrill even after years.
The Zibbibo vines for this Zibbibo white wine grow in Nino Barraco’s black clay and stonefilled vineyards outside Marsala in Western Sicily at altitudes between 0 and 120 m.
