2018 Rosso di Marco
100% Pignatello. De Bartoli has 2 hectares of Pignatello vines planted in the 1990's on clay-loam soils in the nearby province of Trapani, north of Marsala on Sicily's west coast. The vines are organically farmed and harvested by hand in mid-September generally. The fruit is destemmed, macerated in stainless steel tanks and fermented with indigenous yeasts with occasional punchdowns and pumping-over. The wine is aged for 1 year in 10-hectoliter French oak foudres and 6 months in bottle before release. Pignatello yields a medium-bodied, sweet-red-fruited, smoothly textured, gently floral red.
