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.

Grecanico is one of the great varieties of white grape native to Italy. The history of this grape is quite a mystery. Some studies revealed that this grape variety was brought by Greeks to Italy. In the 7th Century BC, the Greeks brought many varieties of grape wines to Italy one of those was Grecanico. Grecanico is planted in some Italian regions, such as Veneto (where is called Garganega), Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Umbria, and Sicily. It is appreciated for its strong straw yellow color, with golden traces. The wine is quite acidic, sapid, and elegant.
