Ferracane

Fabio Ferracane's company is located in the Marsala area of ​​Sicily. It was born in the 90s when the parents of Fabio, Antonino and Rosa Maria inherit a small estate, and begin to produce wine for themselves and their friends in respect of family traditions. Antonino's passion for the art of viticulture and respect for what soon became a family tradition were passed on to his youngest son, Fabio, who began to follow the same paternal steps he took in the estate's vineyards. Fabio after graduating in Enology, and having gained experience in various wineries, especially in Australia, in 2011 he returned to Marsala with the awareness that the enological expression of the beautiful area of ​​Marsala can be a real reason for living, and begins to making wine, bottling and marketing the wine produced by the family vineyards under the careful and reassuring gaze of the "Fatina di Bacco", the elegant company logo. Today the company covers an area of ​​about 7 hectares, planted with above all autochthonous vineyards such as Nero d'Avola, Grillo and Catarratto. Most of the vineyards are located in front of the Natural Reserve of the Stagnone di Marsala Islands, and are kissed by the sea breeze and the warm sun of Western Sicily, which together with mild winters and hot and sunny summers allows the production of high grapes sugar content. When the perfect balance between total acidity and sugar content is reached in the berries, the aromas of the original fruit reach the optimum. It is the right time for the harvest. The carefully selected grapes are harvested by hand, and quickly taken to the cellar to avoid unwanted fermentation. If the vineyards are the soul, the cellar is the heart. Here the grapes are vinified in respect of the most ancient Marsalese traditions. The wine is made exclusively in purity to enhance the fragrance of the original fruit which results in a finished product of remarkable elegance and pleasant persistence. In this way the peculiarities of the different vines are exalted to the maximum, the typicality of each individual vineyard in relation to its zonation. The sun, the salt, the wind and the sea are those natural elements that allow Fabio Ferracane to produce wines of excellent quality with a strong yet elegant personality and unmistakable organoleptic characteristics.
