Curatolo Arini, Marsala Fine
NOTE : You need a mix of any 6 bottles to checkout - we ship in multiples of 6 bottles with a 6 bottle minimum.
A quality Marsala wine made in the traditional way. Dry in style, it has all of the characteristics of a traditional Marsala, with notes of raisins and vanilla. Full-bodied and harmonic on the palate.
Established in 1875 by Vito Curatolo Arini, the winery is now run by the fifth generation of the Curatolo family, making it the oldest family-owned Marsala producer. Alberto Antonini is the consultant winemaker and his influence is evident in the wines, combining the richness that Sicily can easily provide with the freshness only someone with Alberto’s experience can retain.
Thanks to the favourable climate in Sicily, consistency in quality can be assured from vintage to vintage.
The single-vineyard Zibibbo (the local name for Muscat of Alexandria) is grown in vineyards in the western part of Sicily, just inland from Marsala. It is dry and aromatic in style, pairing perfectly with food. The Nero d‘Avola grapes come from vineyards in central Sicily, in the province of Caltanissetta. The vineyards here are 500 metres above sea level, where the combination of warm days and cool nights helps produce premium, fruit-driven red wines.
The Marsalas, still made in the traditional way, are true to tradition and make a great alternative to Sherry. The stunning art-deco label was designed by Ernesto Basile, a famous Palermo architect in the latter part of the 19th century. The Marsala Fine is an expressive dry style with delicious notes of dried citrus and toasted almonds.
The vineyards are located in Western Sicily, just slightly inland from Marsala in the Trapani province. The vines are east facing and spur cordon pruned, planted on sandy and clay rich soils.
