Zisola Azisa Sicilia DOC

2017

In a Nutshell

Fresh and zesty Sicilian white blend.

Tasting Notes

Vibrant lemon yellow in colour with attractive aromas of ripe citrus fruits, delicate florals and a hint of tropical fruit. The palate is fresh and zesty, typical of Grillo, but with good weight and a full mouth-feel, thanks to the Catarratto.

Production Notes

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 harvest, the grapes are gently pressed and fermented at cool temperatures of around 15°C to ensure that the aromatic compounds of the grapes are retained.

Producer - Zisola (Mazzei)

Owners of Castello di Fonterutoli in Chianti, the Mazzei family have been making renowned wines since the 14th century and are closely linked to the history of winemaking in Tuscany. Today, three generations work together running the Zisola estate, just outside Noto in Sicily, which they purchased in 2002: Lapo Mazzei with the help of his sons, Filippo and Francesco, and Filippo’s son, Giovanni. The family devotes itself to winemaking, with a constant commitment to innovation and improvement while respecting tradition, family values and the natural environment.
