BAGLIO DI PIANETTO
Many years ago, a child asked his mother to buy him a bottle of wine. They were in Sicily, traveling, and she, of course, replied that he was still too young. But he insisted and his mother gave it to him, as long as he waited seventeen to open it. On reaching that age, the child, who by now had become a boy, finally opened the bottle, but the wine had partly evaporated. That boy, Count Paolo Marzotto, never managed to drink that wine he had waited for so long, but this particular transformation intrigued him to the point of undertaking a search to understand where everything had originated, that is to understand how to make wine. This research, a successful research, went through Veneto, Tuscany, Alto Adige, Lombardy, until it rejoined in Sicily in 1997, in Pianetto, in the countryside of Palermo, which with its hills, greenery, rocks and the richness of water is reminiscent of a "small Switzerland".
Here the desire of Count Paolo to produce wines that exalted the uniqueness of this particular terroir was harmoniously realized.
