NERO D'AVOLA is a totally natural DOC wine, without added sulphites. It is produced from our grapes, selected on the plant and harvested by hand, in our dry-grown vineyards, in a rigorous organic regime, following the ancient peasant traditions.
Full-bodied and intense, it gives the palate a unique emotion, a perfect expression of the terroir , characterized by a balanced combination of the heat of a hill facing south and the cool proximity of the sea, facing the Egadi islands.
Also known by the synonym of black Calabrese (originally Calaulisi, from Calea - Aulisi which dialectically indicated the Avola grape, then evolved into Calabrisi) Nero d'Avola is certainly the most important red grape variety in Sicily and is cultivated in all its provinces. The wines produced have a very strong character and remarkable structure, whose good acidity gives the possibility of a long aging.
Mastro di Baglio are a team of five young winegrowers from Marsala, united by their love for nature and their desire to enhance the legacy of their families’ ancient farming tradition. The climate is mild and the terroir is extraordinary.
The symbol of their company is the " Baglio ".
Born in western Sicily as a "fortified farm", this building typology was widely spread in the Marsalese countryside between the 18th and 19th centuries. Built in parallel with the development of the wine economy, the baglio was at the same time the home of peasant families and wine cellars. The "Mastro di Baglio" was the keeper of an ancient wisdom, handed down for generations; they directed the entire winemaking process, respecting the times and laws of nature.
In their vineyards they use no irrigation, no chemical herbicides or synthetic plant protection, only sulfur and copper fungicides (limited to two or three treatments per year). The protection of biodiversity, the empathic relationship with our lands and the knowledge of our vineyards, one by one, is their strength.
Their wine cellar was built almost a century ago for domestic wine production, it has been recently renovated and equipped with the most modern technologies, such as stainless steel vats with temperature control system.
