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 and spicy and at affordable prices! It is a modern, recognizable and original line of typical Sicilian wines

The RARI Nerello Mascalese Terre Siciliane is made from the typical Sicilian Nerello Mascalese. The vineyards are located in Belice Valley, Sicily and 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 area is about 300 meters above sea level and benefits from a dry microclimate and good water retention. The soil is rich in limestone and traces of gypsum from the lime-sulphurous structure of the environment.

In the glass, the Rari Nerello Mascalese Terre Siciliane from Cantine San Marzano has a bright ruby red color. If you hold the glass at an angle, you can see a transition of the color to garnet red at the edges. In the glass, this red wine from Cantine San Marzano shows aromas of black cherries, morello cherries, blackberries, plums, complemented by oriental spices, cinnamon and vanilla. On the palate, the Rari Nerello Mascalese Terre Siciliane starts pleasantly dry, firm and aromatic. Despite its dry taste profile, this red wine captivates with a delicate melting and a finely textured residual sweetness. On the tongue, this balanced red wine is characterized by an extremely dense texture. Thanks to its typical fruit acidity, the Rari Nerello Mascalese Terre Siciliane is fantastically fresh and lively on the palate. In the finish, this red wine from the wine-growing region of Sicily delights with its beautiful length, with again hints of blackcurrant and plum. In the aftertaste, mineral notes of the lime-dominated soils are added. The beautiful acidity also ensures that this wine can continue to sink for a while. We don't deny it - we are big fans of Sicilian wine. Elegance, freshness and minerality go hand in hand. Delicious with cold cuts and salami, savory starters and risotto.
