A brief history
The Estate is located in South-East Sicily, the land of origin of the Nero d'Avola vine only a few steps from Noto, famous for its baroque buildings and Unesco World Heritage Site. The Mazzei identified the latent potential of this land rich with history, culture, and charm, and started an ambitious wine making project in 2003.
A property of 50 hectares, the area extends around the 3 buildings "bagli" of the estate, of which the main one enjoys a wonderful view over Noto and the surrounding "gardens" cultivated with vineyards, citrus trees, olives, and almonds. Here a small but efficient winery is provided with stainless steel vats with temperature control for wine making and about 350 oak barrels for fining the wines.
In addition to wine, production also includes Extra virgin Olive Oil produced from the Moresca, Ogliarola Messinese, and Nocellara Etnea cultivars, citrus fruit, and almonds.
