During the Spanish rule, a count crossed Sicily and reached Matarocco, a dense cloud of houses crossed by a winding road dating back three centuries and famous for the culinary specialties of ancient origin that captivated him. Since then, he committed to pass on to generations to come the recipe for excellence of that place: the Matarocco, a typical peasant tomato dish known only in Marsala, used as a condiment for pasta and bruschetta and that housewives still prepare today according to tradition. This line is dedicated to the encounter between the Earl and Matarocco, and has been created to celebrate the best Sicilian cultivar, Grillo, Inzolia, Grecanico, Alcamo white, Nero d'Avola, Frappato, Syrah. We propose a selection of this wine line.

Frappato is an indigenous red grape, planted in Sicily primarily in Siracusa and Ragusa areas. It is a very old red grape variety, coming probably from Spain during the eighteenth Century. Frappato is an excellent wine of brilliant ruby color, with vinous and fruity aromas.
