Country Of Origin: Italy

A grand family of wine, enchanted by Sicily, discovered the hamlet of Zisola near Noto, an area of rare beauty. This wine is made from traditional Alberello vines grown in the ancient area of Noto.

 

The Zisola estate is the Mazzei family’s most recent investment and is located in south-eastern Sicily, the home of Nero d’Avola, about 1 km outside the magnificent town of Noto which is celebrated for its Baroque architecture. There are two “baglio” buildings on the site which form the centre of around 50 hectares of bush-trained vines interspersed with olives, citrus trees and almonds.

 

The vineyards are located at 130 metres above sea level with a south eastern exposure. The vines are free standing ‘alberello’ bush vines, planted at a density of 5,550 vines per hectare and the soil is calcareous.

 

The small but efficient cellar is equipped with temperature controlled stainless steel vats. After harvesting - handpicked in September - the grapes are gently pressed. Maceration lasts for approximately two weeks. Fermentation then takes place at 26-28°C. The wine is then aged for 10 months in 225 litre barriques (33% new) before bottling.
