MARCO DE BARTOLI & “VECCHIO SAMPERI”

Marco de Bartoli fotoMarco De Bartoli was the first  producer I met since I started  Sicilywine.com  Project. He was introduce to me by my great old friend # 1 Wine merchant in Denmark, Carlo Merolli who says about him: “ Marco is a real Sicilian man, hard and  serious worker, the first pioneer whose mission is to give the ” Fine Marsala” the dignity and the right value of a great wine as it deserves”. I’m sure is gone like you”  
 
De Bartoli 7Signor Marco De Bartoli, was  a  great Sicilian man, a person as solar and impetuous as  the boisterously is our land. When you met him would tell you everything in a few minutes, and with his typical Sicilian generosity, let you taste everything he produced , explaining his joy and satisfaction after reading the positive reviews for its wine, but at the same time : he   expressed his anger, as it was considered to be the wine from South and Southern Italy till few years ago. Angry  against the men of our own land that have transformed the name “Marsala”, for decades, in a  almost vulgar word.With tears in his eyes. and now in mine, when he spoke of the deterioration of his Sicily, lighted up in fury, but relaxed immediately, when it approached the glass to his lips inviting me to a toast. Salute!

I never saw him again, but just that time he gave me a good lesson: “Never Give up”. Grazzi Marco Riposa in Pace, I’ll never forget you!”. Salvatore Cottone
 
 
 
 
 DE Bartoli 3The company is twelve kilometers from Marsala, in that land of Sicily which is great in all its manifestations, for better or for worse, the hard ground , a  land of hard men. Marco De Bartoli has signs of these every day fights, but he  will win against all odds, with the tenacious, stubborn conviction of being right, and to prove it with his precious creature the “Marsala Vecchio Samperi”
