Mazzei Zisola Noto Rosso


Mazzei is the name of one of the most famous and richest families in the history of Tuscan winemaking, the truth is that their desire to discover and experience other things led them to look for other areas where they could continue their winemaking adventure. So, in 2003, they became aware of the great potential hidden within the Val di Noto region in southeastern Sicily (Italy). A total of 21 hectares of vineyards where Tuscan passion meets Sicilian tradition.

Zisola is made only from traditional “Alberello” (bushy) vines grown near Noto, an unique area to make wine. The proximity of the sea and the soil rich in limestone allow to best balance the natural Nero d’Avola exuberance, with a great freshness and elegance.

Spicy fish soups, savoury pasta and rice dishes, grilled red meats and vegetables.
