While Marsala is famous for its solera-aged wines, Nino Barraco is unusual in that he specialises in wines made the way they were before the sweet tooth of the British prevailed.
Nino took over his family’s vineyards in 2004 and from the outset he has worked organically, focussing on the native grapes of his Western Sicily and single vineyard wines, hoping to show others the potential he sees in the region he calls home.
From a young parcel of Zibibbo that grows on sandy soils. These grapes are fermented on skins for a couple of days before being pressed off to concrete. The aromas here take you straight to the island, heady with herbs, citrus and spice. It’s whistle clean on the palate, with lime-like acidity bringing serious refreshment. A complex wine that pairs so well with the region’s emblematic dish, pasta con le sarde.
