Vigneti Zabù Il Passo Nerello Mascalese 2018 - Wine

Tasting Notes

This wine is bright ruby red in colour. On the nose, there are intense aromas of red fruits combined with hints of coffee, spice and cocoa thanks to the oak ageing. On the palate, it is vibrant, well-balanced with soft tannins and a long, silky finish.

Production Notes

Harvest for the 2017 vintage began in the first week of September and finish at the beginning of October, which ensured the grapes were ripened fully

Producer Profile

The vineyards of this property in south-western Sicily caught the eye and winemaking talents of Valentino Sciotti. Valentino (of Gran Sasso and Vesevo) saw that they had great vineyards and a good winery, but were missing the necessary expertise to make wines that the market required. Valentino and his team of young winemakers took the already high-quality raw materials and transformed them into attractive, drinkable wines. The new Grillo is fermented at low temperatures in stainless steel, resulting in a wine with fresh aromatics and lovely balance. The best organic grapes were selected for the production of the Il Passo Verde and organic Nero dAvola. 50% of the wine was aged in barriques and the other 50% in concrete tanks for about six months. The 'Il Passo' Nerello Mascalese is the star of the show here. It is beautifully packaged, the wine in the bottle exceeds expectations. It is freshly scented and is full, rich and supple on the palate.
