About the Producer

This is a young estate in southwestern Sicily, whose vineyards caught the eye and winemaking talents of Valentino Sciotti. Valentino (of Gran Sasso and Vesevo) saw they had great vineyards and a good winery but were missing the necessary expertise to make wines the market required. Valentino and his team of young winemakers have taken the raw materials and transformed them into wines that people want to drink.

Vineyard and Winery

The vineyards for Vigneti Zabù were planted in 2005 on the hills around Lake Arancio in Sambuca di Sicilia in south-western Sicily. Lake Arancio, with its crystal-clear water, creates a perfect microclimate for viticulture. The vines are south/south-west facing at an altitude of 350 metres above sea level. Soils are predominantly limestone with a small percentage of clay and sand.

The Nero d'Avola grapes were destemmed and crushed on arrival at the winery, before fermentation took place in temperaturecontrolled stainless-steel tanks at 25°C for 10-12 days. Gentle, regular pump overs occurred every four hours during fermentation. The wine was lightly pressed and remained in stainless-steel tanks until fining and bottling.
