Established in 1875 by Vito Curatolo Arini, the winery is now run by the fifth generation of Curatolos, making it the oldest family-owned Marsala producing business. Their stunning label was designed by Ernesto Basile, a famous architect in Palermo in the latter part of the 19th century and is very much in the art deco style. The new range of wines under the Curatolo Arini label showcases a great expression of native Sicilian varieties.
Harvest took place in September. After destemming and cold maceration at 6-8°C for 36 hours, the grapes were soft pressed. Fermentation then took place in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks at 14°C for 20 days. The wine was aged on its lees for a month prior to bottling.
