A New Generation of Winemakers: Heroic Agriculture, Organic Wine
Marchese delle Saline, with its Organic Etna Bianco and Etna Rosso obtained from the relative Carricante and Nerello Mascalese vines, offers those who taste it the truest expression of the volcanic wines of the Etna.
The particularities of these wines derive mainly from the volcanic soils and from the microclimate that fixes important scents in the grapes. The Nerello Mascalese gives origin to reds of absolute finesse, the Carricante is ideal to produce a white wine with a particular flavor that collects all the scents of the sea on the slopes of Etna.
The Marchese delle Saline brand, born in the territory of Trapani and has its roots a long time ago, when grandfather Giacomo, in 1860, moved to the Sicilian countryside and began work on the first plots of land in the district of Baiata. Since then, the passion, the knowledge and the love to do things with the heart, have been handed down from father to son, in the years up to today. In those years Giacomo Rallo, when he was not busy with the work in the vineyard, collected salt at the “Marsala’s saltmaker” during the summer season. Being very serious in his job and productive, grandfather Giacomo, he was called by their colleagues with the name of “Marchese”. His story and his love for the salt pans brought his nephews, years later, to honor his grandfather’s memory, giving the company the name of “Marchese delle Saline”.
