Mazzei, Zisola, Noto Rosso, Nero d'Avola, Sicily, Italy, 2018
The Mazzei family, historic owners of Tuscany’s renowned Fonterutoli estate and one of Italy’s most highly regarded winemaking families, are proud to present Zisola, an elegant Sicilian red wine of great complexity, concentration and aging potential. Made from Sicily's indigenous Nero d’Avola grape, limited-production Zisola comes from the Mazzei family property in southeastern Sicily, just outside the magnificent town of Noto. Here, in this alluring spot rich in history and culture, the Mazzeis discovered unexpressed winemaking potential and have pioneered an ambitious project to bring that potential to light. In fact, the thumbprint that appears on the label is that of Francesco Mazzei who, together with his father Lapo and his brother Filippo, is dedicated to placing the Mazzei family’s mark of uncompromised quality on this exciting viticultural region.

100% Nero D’Avola
Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Zisola is made only from traditional "Alberello" (bushy) vines grown near Noto, an unique area to make wine. The proximity of the sea and the soil rich in limestone allow to best balance the natural Nero d'Avola exuberance, with a great freshness and elegance.
Well built with notes of forest fruits and sunny orange peel flavors, long and layered taste.
Pair with spicy fish soups, savory pasta and rice dishes, grilled red meats and vegetables.

A very pretty red with sour-cherry, light chocolate and mushroom aromas and flavors. Hibiscus undertones. Medium to full body, round and soft tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink now.
