Curatolo Arini

Sicily, sicily Italy

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.

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 and pairs 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. Thanks to the favourable climate in Sicily, consistency in quality can be guaranteed from vintage to vintage.

The Marsalas, still made in the traditional way, are the real deal 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 Marsala Superiore uses base wines made from the native Sicilian grapes Grillo, Inzolia and Catarratto fortified with white grape spirit and aged for five years in cask. The Riserva is only made in the best vintages and has a similar ageing process, the result is a rich, aromatic and heady wine. The Marsala Vergine Riserva is also only made in the best vintages and has a longer ageing process that lasts almost 25 years. As a result of this, it has beautiful length and complexity.
