Rosso Di Marco de Bartoli Pignatello Terre Siciliane IGP 2021
A territory to be rediscovered: the natives
Three native grape varieties, symbols of tradition, that have always characterized the territory of the province of Trapani: Catarratto (also in the “Lucido” and “Extra Lucido” variants), Grillo and Pignatello.
Abandoned by commercial logic, they are the focus of research, to continue exploring suggestions and vitality of yesteryear.
Strength, elegance and terroir-the peculiarities of these varieties.
How and when Mark’s Red.
