Description

The emotional flow made of creativity and tenacity, of confidence and human warmth, has oriented the choices of Conte Paolo Marzotto towards the foundation of Baglio di Pianetto. Hence from here it was the beginning of a great adventure, originated from the Count's aspiration to create a Sicilian Chateau while aiming to high quality winemaking: in 1997, savouring a taste of a land rich of culture and traditions, with ancient flavours that are able to return current from day to day, from sip to sip, he left the region of Veneto and moved to Sicily. The Count Marzotto, thanks to a solid investment base, to an effective strategy and to a strong professional team was able, in a short time period, to scale the company from small into a bigger size, matching traditions and family values with innovation and globalisation. Thus opened Baglio di Pianetto to new markets which leaded the growth of the brand that, even if still young, it boasts deep and unique roots. Just like Sicily. As of today the property comprises approximately 160 hectares of vineyards, divided into two different estates: the first one is Pianetto, located in Santa Cristina Gela close to Palermo, and the second one is Baroni located near Noto in province of Siracusa. The Count Marzotto chose these lands because located in various microclimatic zones: from the altitude of mounts, to the proximity of sea where cherished by marine breeze. Their position, ideal in terms of thermal excursion, rainfall and exposure, offers the opportunity to produce peculiar wines of balanced flavours and pleasantness. For this reason, it has been decided to cultivate various indigenous grape varieties as well as classic international ones, and constantly seeking the best relationship between the territory and the nature of vines. Besides the complete line of 15 wines, Baglio di Pianetto also produces 2 extra virgin olive oil, derived from: Biancolilla and Cerasuola olive trees varieties cultivated in Pianetto's estate, and Moresca and Verdella species, cultivated in Baroni's estate.
