Info about the wine

Originally the Rosso di Marco a cuvée of Cabernet and Merlot, which Marco de Bartoli had planted on the advice of his doctor: "Marco, drink more red wine for your health! At some point, however, Marco de Bartoli decided against any form of immigrant grape variety, so in the early 1990s he preferred to plant the indigenous, almost unknown variety Pignatello instead of the French varieties. To this day, the two hectares of Pignatello - actually called Perricone and probably related to Sangiovese; because Pigantello is a vine from Lombardy - are the only red vines in the winery. They stand on clay-loamy soil near Trapani in the north of Marsala. The fruit was destemmed and fermented spontaneously in stainless steel. Afterwards, the Pignatello was aged for one year in 10-hectolitre barrels and then for another six months in the bottle.


Covered cherry red, almost black in the core with slight lightening towards the rim.


It appears charming and sweet on the nose. Aromas of dark cherries, cassis and figs combine with the scent of liquid dark chocolate and sweet spices like cinnamon and clove.


The 2019 Rosso di Marco is what is known as a wine that brings a lot of pleasure in the glass for little money. On the palate, it surprises with a drinkable structure, which can be attributed to its stimulating acidity and invigorating tannin. Simply perfect with down-to-earth Italian cuisine, which is as uncomplicated as it is.

Best served slightly chilled.
