In 1962, 19 winemakers, determined to demonstrate the high potential of wines from Salento, founded "Cantine San Marzano". In addition to their well-known wines from Puglia, they also have vineyards in Sicily across the heel of Italy's boot. RARI is the name of this small Sicilian wine line. It is the oenologists of the famous CANTINE SAN MARZANO who dared to jump over the water to the beautiful island to look for suitable vineyards: they found what they were looking for in the northwest of Sicily, in the hills around Gibellina and in the valley near Belice. They have tracked down older vines from Nero d'Avola, Nerello Mascalese, Syrah and Grillo and are now making the San Marzano Rari series. Reduced yields and professional cellar work result in wines with the typical style that has made SAN MARZANO famous: fruity, drinkable, full-bodied and spicy and at affordable prices! It is a modern, recognizable and original line of typical Sicilian wines

The Syrah Vineyards are located in Gibellina Hills. The area is about 200 meters above sea level. The soil is rich in clay and limestone, iron oxides. The vineyards have a planting density of 4,000 plants per HA. This high planting density results in low yields and forces the plants to root deeper due to competition. The grapes are selected and vinified by the oenologists of CANTINE SAN MARZANO. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel, after which the wine is aged for several months in oak barrels.

The powerful Rari Syrah Terre Siciliane from Cantine San Marzano enters the glass with an intense dark ruby red color with a garnet tint at the edges. This varietal Italian wine jumps out of the glass with wonderfully expressive notes of blackberries, blueberries, blackcurrants and mulberries. This is accompanied by hints of gingerbread spice, oriental spices and cocoa bean. On the palate, the texture of this powerful red wine is wonderfully dense. Thanks to its present fruit acid, the Rari Syrah Terre Siciliane reveals itself fantastically fresh and lively on the palate. In the finish, this red wine from the wine-growing region of Sicily finally inspires with beautiful length. Again show hints of blackcurrant and mulberry. In the aftertaste, mineral notes of the soils dominated by clay and limestone are added. Delicious with roasted veal liver with apples, onions and balsamic vinegar sauce, stuffed peppers or veal boiled beef with beans and tomatoes.
