The Marchesi Mazzei’s Zisola estate is located in southeastern Sicily, the home of Nero d’Avola, about 1 km outside the magnificent town of Noto, celebrated for its Baroque architecture. One of the most beautiful and spectacular areas of the region, it is protected by Unesco as a world heritage site. Here, in this alluring spot, with a long history and a rich culture, like all of Sicily, the Mazzeis found unexpressed potential and pioneered an ambitious project with considerable added value.

The climate in this area of Sicily, along with the special characteristics of the soil and the traditional “Alberello” planting, permits the perfect ripening of the grapes and produces two great wines, Zisola and Doppiozetta, that stand out for their character and aroma.
