Details of wine

Baglio di Pianetto boasts a history of more than twenty years of harvests and has today achieved a balance between tradition and innovation that make it one of the most important companies in all of Sicily.
A company at the top of eco-sustainable production, sanctioned with the transition to organic farming of all the vineyards which have always been the goal of its founder, Count Paolo Marzotto.

The production guarantees a wide range of labels that are able to satisfy the most varied needs and among these we find the Classics line in which the dream of Count Marzotto is realized, that is to create wines in which the warmth of Sicily merged with the elegance of France.

Shymer is part of this line and the name comes from the two grape varieties with which it is produced, Shyrah and Merlot.

A wine obtained with manual selection of the grapes, followed by de-stemming and light pressing and aging in French barriques for 12 months.

 A full-bodied and harmonious wine, Shymer clearly expresses the different characteristics of the grape varieties that compose it.

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.
