Details of wine

The Baglio Pianetto winery can be defined as a "SMALL FRANCE" IN THE PALERMO COUNTRYSIDE ", a definition linked to the characteristics enjoyed by the area in which it is located. The vineyards are constantly ventilated with strong temperature changes that transfer aromatic and freshness to the wines produced. A viticulture in the heart of the Doc of Monreale that embraces organic agriculture in both cultivation and winemaking in 2013. In addition to this philosophy, it also produces natural unfiltered wines, without sulphites and with indigenous yeasts.
Since 2016 all the grapes are produced with organic certification.
Riamone is the first red produced and represents the first fusion between Sicily represented by Nero d'Avola and France with its Merlot.

Many years ago, a little boy (who had yet to discover who or what he would become) asked his mother to buy him a bottle of wine. They were in Sicily at the time, on a holiday, and she, of course, replied that he was much too young. But the boy kept insisting until his mother, finally, relented. She said she would buy him the bottle, as long as he promised to wait till he was seventeen years old to open it. Once he got to that age the boy, now a young man, opened the bottle: the wine, however, had partly evaporated. That young man, Count Paolo Marzotto, was not able to drink the wine he waited so long for, but the particular transformation it had undergone made him want to know more about what had happened. In short, he began researching the art of winemaking. This research, a successful research at that, has taken him to regions such as Veneto, Tuscany, Alto Adige, Lombardy, and in 1997 back to Sicily, to Baglio di Pianetto, in the countryside near Palermo. An area that, with its abundance of green hills, rocky outcrops and water, he would affectionately describe as a “little Switzerland”. Here is where Count Paolo fulfilled his dream of producing a wine able to express this unique terroir through the particular savoir faire learned from the great French chateaux, so that the vineyard of Tenuta Baroni, located between Noto e Pachino, acquired in’98, has become the perfect place to develop his autochthonous Nero d’Avola (il Cembali), which the Count considers to be one of his best wines, thanks to it unmistakable softness and elegance. Wishes and ideas that have become a reality thanks to his love for Sicily and his passion for wine, a love kept alive through innovative and courageous choices, renewed in the second and third generations that have stepped in to help further the founder’s vision, testifying to the historic commitment of the Marzotto family.
