Winemaker's Notes

Vineyards currently cover approximately 17 acres of the estate, mainly calcareous soils planted chiefly to Nero d'Avola vines trained in the traditional alberello (free standing) style. The vines enjoy a west/southwest exposure and benefit from a steady sea breeze, which cools the vineyards during the hot summer days and warms the land in the winter. This exceptional microclimate permits ideal ripening of the grapes and yields elegant, aromatic red wine.

Deep purple, aromas of wild berries and hints of spice.

Rich flavors of blackberry and dark cherry, accented by notes of violet, pepper and exotic spices.

Zisola is a Nero d'Avola that is aged 10 months in oak for soft sophistication and creamy aromas of red fruit and spice. The wine is evolved and layered and shows great depth and personality.- Editors' Choice, Wine Enthusiast 05/09

Sicily was at one time more quantity focused than quality, and while it's still producing a great deal of wine, the quality coming out is much better. With poor soil (great for grapes), warm sunshine, little...
