Inzolia, Cataratto, and Grillo grapes. Produced & bottled by Baglio Curatolo Arini. The story begins in 1875 when a young Vito Curatolo Arini decided to build a winery at the center of his vineyards at Marsala. Vito used Arini to distinguish himself amongst others with the Curatolo name because he had a dream—he would take his own premium marsala to the world. Vito commissioned Ernesto Basile, a well-known architect from Palermo, to design the label for his first Marsala. Basile was father of the Sicilian 'Liberty style' or Art Nouveau. This label is still currently used and is admired throughout the world for its originality and elegance. With a talent for the business, hard work, and tenacity, he managed very quickly to turn the winery into a very successful exporter of Marsala. And in the late 1970s, a range of still wines, made only from local Sicilian grape varieties, was added to the estate's portfolio. Since then, the Curatolo family's enthusiasm, passion, and commitment to making fine wines has never lessened.
