  • Alcohol By Volume


Rich and generous with a nice lick of high grade oak, this is what great Sicilian reds are all about. This has dollops of juicy blackberry and Morello cherry fruit to it. Proves a gutsy red that maintains balance by a cool crisp underpinning offood-friendly acidity. A beauty.

In the vineyard

The vineyards for Vigneti Zabu were planted in 2005 on the hills around Lake Arancio in Sambuca di Sicilia in south-western Sicily.
Blend of Nero d'Avola and Nerello Mascalese.

In the winery

As soon as the grapes were ripened, the canes are cut and the grapes allowed to dry naturally in the hot Sicilian sun. When they lose about 30% of their weight, they are harvested, pressed and undergo a long maceration on the skins. The wine is then aged for 6 months in barrique before bottling.
