Zisola Nero D’avola 2017Mazzei
Ripe damson plum, forest fruit, orange peel and floral aromas. A dark, brooding wine that shows the wilder, animalistic side of Nero d’Avola in its dark fruit, earthiness, sage, and mint. Layers of flavour and a fine mineral streak, versatile and so easily drinkable!
|TYPE OF WINE|
A long lasting bond unites the Mazzei family with Tuscany and wines since the XI century.
Ser Lapo Mazzei is the author of the first known document to use the “Chianti” denomination in 1398; in 1435, when his granddaughter Madonna Smeralda Mazzei married Piero di Agnolo da Fonterutoli, the holding became part of the family’s estate. Since then, for 24 generations, the Mazzei family produces wine at Castello di Fonterutoli, which even after its recent expansion still remains the beating heart of the company.
