Zisola Sicilian Duo Pack
The Mazzei family have been woven into the tapestry of Italian wine since the 11th Century. They’ve been making wine at Castello di Fonterutoli for 24 generations, Ser Lapo Mazzei wrote the first document to mention the Chianti denomination back in 1398, and Philip Mazzei was friends with the Founding Fathers of the United States (many of whom were big wine fans) and his writings would influence the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights. That’s some history. And now they’re writing a new chapter with sustainable farming and expansion beyond the borders of Chianti Classico into Maremma at Belguardo and Sicily at Zisola.
Zisola is where this fabulous new Mazzei boxset comes from. Based in South-East Sicily, a stone’s throw from where the Nero d’Avola vine was born, the estate offers stupendous views over the UNESCO World Heritage Site at Noto and the surrounding vineyards and groves of citrus, olives and almonds.
This Gift Box contains two of the estate’s most important wines, both of which have a lovely bit of bottle age on them – something of a rarity when it comes to Sicilian wine. The first is Zisola Sicilia Noto Rosso DOC – a sea-influenced style bursting with freshness, orange peel and forest fruit – and Doppiozeta Noto Rosso DOC – a big, dark, muscular and explosively spicy blend of Nero d’Avola, Syrah and Cabernet Franc. Both wines have picked up medals at the prestigious Decanter World Wine Awards in the past, and both are extremely food friendly and drinking beautifully right now. So, this will make a fantastic gift for any lover of big reds.
