Marco De Bartoli Bukkuram Sole d'Agosto 2012 Sicily, Italy

code: TEC0009012

Another wonderful Passito from the volcanic island of Pantelleria, located between Sicily and Tunisia. Complex nose with aromas of apricot, raisins, dates and honey. On the palate the acidity cuts through the sweetness. Drink with a nice seasonal fruit salad or, perhaps, with creamy pastries.

More details: Suitable for vegans. 50% of the grapes are dried in the sunlight on mats for a minimum of four weeks. The remaining grapes mature on the vine until September. Once the fermentation begins, the grapes previously dried are added to the base wine and left macerating for about three months, until a balance between the alcohol content and residual sugar is achieved. The wine is then aged for six months in French oak barrels and six months in stainless steel vats.

Running a 20 ha winery near the town of Marsala in Sicily, Marco de Bartoly is the man who, 40 years ago, revived the Marsala wines which had become, for most of them, cheap cooking wines. Marco used the ancient solera method: adding small amounts of young wine to wines that are ageing in wood barrels. The result is a beautiful, fine, dry and delicate Marsala. Since then, the family has grown and Marco's children, Renato, Sebastiano and Josephine now run the domain maintaining their father's organic methods. No synthetic chemicals and no industrial yeasts are used in the vineyards and at the winery. Their focus has expanded beyond Marsala to produce also a range of dry white wines made from Sicilian varieties such as Grillo, Zibibbo and Catarratto as well as a red wine made with Pignatello and a sweet Passito made on the island of Pantelleria. The range has expanded but quality remains the core value of the De Bartoli family.
