Contrada Fornara Samperi, Marsala, Sicily
Veronelli and Stefi rightly define Marco De Bartoli as a milestone in Italian viticulture, founder of a company, a heavenly Cerberus, between Samperi, 12 km from Marsala, and Bukkuram on Pantelleria.
Now in the saddle are Sebastiano and Giuseppina, the children of Marco, who died in 2011 too young.
Marco is described as a worthy Sicilian, volcanic and dreamy, impetuous and sunny, proud and southerner, defender of his land and its wine tradition, critical when it comes to those who have cleared Marsala or ruined Sicily. Fearless and unrepeatable.
We at Apewineboxes would have loved to meet him in person, unfortunately this is not possible; however, we can respect him in appreciating his wonders. It makes us feel closer to him.
The company's icon is the Vecchio Samperi, a splendid Marsala that is, however, not fortified and therefore does not fall within the specifications for Marsala Vergine. A unique wine.
