Distinctive Winery and Microclimate
Inspired by France's vaunted Châteaux wineries, Paolo Marzotto opened his Baglio di Pianetto estate in 1997 to take advantage of Sicily's unique terroir.
Earth Friendly Practices
An early adopter of sustainable viticultural practices, Baglio di Pianetto has a 256.6 kWp photovoltaic system reducing C02 emissions by 407 pounds per year. The winery also utilizes a rainwater purification and recycling system. Since 2013, the Marzotto family has used organic farming for both cultivation and vinification processes.
The Flavor Experience
The grape vines at Baglio di Pianetto are allowed to wither: this increases the grape's sugar content, resulting in a golden color and an intense, fruit-forward aroma. Hints of citrus, orange blossom, peach, and apricot blend into a subtle sweetness on the palate, while a balanced mouthfeel makes for sophisticated yet easy sipping.
