Are you in need of a bit of sunshine? Warm rays to soothe the soul? How about those warm rays in the form of a 90, 92 and 93pt Sicilian red that explodes with flavor, spice and well, warmth, at a staggering 57% off? Let us take a stroll through a dreamy land first, shall we?
Imagine basking in the intense Sicilian sunshine, surrounded by history, an UNESCO World Heritage site, Baroque architecture, vineyards, olive groves, citrus trees and a steady sea breeze. Have a good picture in your head? Well that’s where this wine comes from. A magical estate run by the notorious Mazzei family (those Mazzeis that are famously known for some of Tuscany’s most revered wines). This powerhouse of a winemaking family fell in love with the Zisola Estate in 2003, identifying its immense winemaking potential and have transformed the 124 acre estate into a source for exceptional wines.
Now that we just want to pick up and move to Sicily, let's discuss the wine, yes? Or perhaps, let’s just hear from our critic friends:
"So much ripe fruit here with dried-berry and blueberry character. Full body, velvety tannins and a long and powerful finish. So much going on here. Gorgeous. Generous Sicily style." – James Suckling, 93pts
"Candied cherry and rum cake appear on the bouquet. Beyond those dark fruit layers is a savory presence of exotic spice, leather and moist chewing tobacco. This is a plump, ripe and modern red from Sicily that offers generous abundance and juiciness.” – Robert Parker Wine Advocate, 92pts
Juice, spicy, and power. There’s lots to love here and at the price (and the scores), there’s no question about how quickly you should add this to your cart. Go on now. It won’t last!
