Details of wine

Baglio di Pianetto is a company with a strong green spirit, which in 2013 joined the organic farming protocol for both cultivation and winemaking. The total conversion to organic ended in 2016 and today all the grapes produced are organic. The Viognier Baglio di Pianetto 2018 is obtained from a selection of grapes pressed in a soft way followed by a spontaneous fermentation in steel. The refinement is done in steel and then ends in the bottle. A soft and elegant wine, of great balance, with notes of tropical fruit and a marked minerality. Ideal for a dinner of oriental dishes or accompanied with a selection of sushi.



Giallo paglierino con riflessi verdolini.


Ha un delicato profumo con deliziose note di frutta gialla (mango, pera, pesca, albicocca, ananas, mela cotogna) fiori primaverili (viola, iris, acacia), muschio e spezie, oltre a nocciole e mandorle tostate.


Vino elegante e molto profumato, morbido e di buon corpo. Una delizia per il palato, grande opulenza, persistente ed equilibrato.

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.
