Frank Mitolo’s father, Bruno, was born to an Italian viticulturist. He arrived in Australia aged 14, with farming in his blood, to work alongside his brothers. With him, he brought the ethos of his homeland, the Abruzzo region – forte e gentile or strong and gentle. Bruno forged a new life in Australia that laid the foundation for his success. Marsican is named after the rare Marsican bear, native to the Abruzzo region. The same bear can be seen in the night sky over Italy forming the Ursa Major, a constellation that has been used as a navigational reference point for millennia. Marsican is a tribute to Bruno’s heritage, and his enduring influence over the family.
Marsican Shiraz is a prized blend of our finest barrels from three distinct vineyard sites in McLaren Vale. Situated only kilometres from the cooling breezes of the Gulf St Vincent, these three vineyards are the source of our prized single vineyard Shiraz’s, Savitar, G.A.M. and Angela.
Each Marsican bottle comes hand wrapped and beautifully presented in an elegant timber gift box.
