Count Paolo Marzotto (1930-2020) was very famous in Italy. After a career as a race car driver in the 1950's, driving in numerous Mille Miglia endurance races, he became the leader of the Marzotto fashion empire. After retiring from his business career Count Marzotto fulfilled his lifelong dream and bought Baglio di Pianetto, a state-of-the-art winery in Sicily. Baglio di Pianetto is located in Santa Cristina Gela, a few miles from Palermo, in a landscape of rolling hills, luscious vegetation and abundance of water. It is often described as “little Switzerland”.

The Syrah grape loves the slopes of this Sicilian estate. The result is an intense and inky red wine, with a complex and caressing bouquet supported by elegant tannins. Rich and elegant aromas, with notes of black cherries, blackcurrants and cocoa. With its intense and persistent, full-bodied and silky tannins this is a wine to enjoy now or cellar for some years. Pair this wine with flavorful cheeses, meat or even barbeque.
