2014 Marabino Nero D'Avola Riserva Archimede Sicilia
The Archimede is a Sicilian red wine made from only Nero d'Avola with a rich and complex personality, one of the best labels of the Marabino winery, rooted in the Syracusan territory. We are located in the heart of the Eloro Pachino denomination, in a land bathed by the sun and the sea, arid and very hot, where wines with an exuberant and incomparable aromatic profile are produced. The same profile that we find in this Reserve, dedicated to the figure of Archimedes, illustrious and ancient inhabitant of Syracuse, dedicated to mathematics and science.
The Nero d'Avola grapes that give rise to the Armagim of Marabino come exclusively from very old vines, planted in 1970, and reared according to the traditional Pachinese sapling system. The cultivation of the vines is carried out in compliance with a biodynamic philosophy that excludes the use of chemical fertilizers or synthetic, herbicides and non-natural parasiticides. In the cellar, following the vinification in red with long maceration of the must with the skins, the wine rests in oak barrels for 24 months, where it has time to evolve to the fullest.
The Nero d'Avola Eloro Pachino Riserva "Archimede" involves the nose with beautiful and fascinating aromas of red fruits and spices, which are articulated in a symphony of very complex aromas. On the palate it is intense and complex, persistent, supported by a good freshness and by soft and velvety tannins. Like the ancient figure of Archimedes, this wine is also a glory and a pride, not only of Syracuse, but of the entire southern part of Sicily, a rich and sunny land where very expressive and exciting wines are born.
