Winemaker's Notes:

This unique blend of Insolia and Viognier has great structure and finesse. Produced from selected vineyards at Baglio di Pianetto, the Sicilian estate of Count Marzotto.

Deep straw yellow. Intense and persistent aroma. Floral notes are followed by aromas of tropical fruit, including pineapple and mango. Excellent structure, balanced and harmonious.

My Notes:

About Baglio di Pianetto:

Baglio di Pianetto is a winery carefully built and groomed to produce world-class Sicilian wine. Sicily is one of Italy's oldest and largest wine-producing regions, and has attracted great attention from top winemakers and consumers alike.

The estate of Baglio di Pianetto includes two vineyards, carefully selected within Sicily and developed to take advantage of altitude and location. The winery combines indigenous grape varietals with classic international grapes to create wines of distinctive character and interest. To recognize the advancements in winemaking in this region, Sicily, along with the rest of Southern Italy, was named Wine Enthusiast's "Region of the Year" in 2003.
