'INTEGER' Grillo Sicilia DocMarco De Bartoli
Integer in Latin means whole, the name was chosen specifically to describe the production philosophy of this wine. Only Grillo grapes are used, a grape variety native to the Marsala area where it has grown for centuries. No chemical or mechanical intervention is carried out on the plants or the soil, except for small amounts of sulfur and copper. The harvest is done manually, and the winemaking processes take place naturally without the addition of yeasts, without filtrations or the addition of corrective substances, and following the natural timing of fermentation.

3500 strains per hectare
Fermentation in oak barrels and maceration, without pumping over or punching down, for 10 days. A small portion ferments in amphorae. Aging in oak barrels on fine lees for 10 months. No filtration or clarification.
