"Ramione" Sicilia DOC Merlot-Nero d'Avola - Baglio di Pianetto

Ramione is almost synonymous with Baglio di Pianetto. This is because it was the first red wine produced in Pianetto and it is the one that still today enthusiasts from all over the world recognize as being the purest expression of the Sicilian winery's style. Ramione, as few people know, is a tribute by the Marzotto family to the previous owner of the estate, Baron Antonio Palizzolo di Ramione. An interesting and enterprising figure, it was he who started the cultivation of vines in Pianetto. Soft and balanced, Ramione represents the right meeting point between Sicily and France. It is, in fact, a blend of Nero d'Avola and Merlot, aged in French oak barrels to acquire the right complexity. Red fruit on the nose while on the palate, in addition to ripe fruit, there are notes of coffee and pepper. Tannins, well present and perceivable, represent a strong point of the wine and contribute to make it even more interesting and enjoyable. A wine that loves the strong flavors of its land of origin, served, however, on a fine china.

There is a beautiful and elegant Sicily. A noble expression of the ancient art of cultivating the land and producing great wines. Baglio di Pianetto, with its more than twenty years of history, represents just this elegant and refined soul. Years that have allowed the company owned by the Marzotto family, with its estates in the countryside of Palermo and in the Val di Noto, to reach very interesting quality standards. In perennial and constant balance between tradition and innovation, Baglio di Pianetto gives life year after year to wines of great personality, all easily distinguishable by their unmistakable elegance. The values safeguarded by Baglio go from respecting the integrity of excellent raw materials to safeguarding and optimizing natural resources. It is no coincidence that a process of conversion to organic farming for the entire agricultural heritage has been underway for some time. An almost mandatory choice for a modern and global company that faces markets all over the world with courage and competence. In the winery, technology dominates, but it can only enhance the work started in the countryside. And generally, it does that very well.
