Maravita was a nickname given to an old farmer. He was famous for cultivating the finest Perricone grapes in Sicily. The secret to his success was the vineyard site in the Madonie Mountains. The wine pays homage to the anonymous farmer. Maravita is the Grand Cru of Perricone and essential for the discerning collector. Crafted by hand-selecting the finest Perricone grapes from 70-year-old vines. The lonely vineyard is 2700 above sea level and uninhabited. The farming method is manual. Artisanal hands sculpt the vines so that the grapes coalesce into a masterpiece wine. The grapes undergo a partial drying process that adds complexity before a soft press. The superior part of the wine comes from that first soft press. Only the first press of wine goes to French oak barrels for further refinement and aged for 3 years before release. A limited production of 3,000 bottles produced annually. Maravita will lead to fascinating conversations over a fine dinner.
