"Shymer" Terre Siciliane IGT Syrah-Merlot - Baglio di Pianetto

Let's start with the name. Shymer is the acronym of the two grapes that make up the blend of this red wine, Shyraz (or rather Syrah) and Merlot. But there’s more. Shymer, in fact, in French, reminds of the mythological figure of the chimera, the fantastic creature symbolizing impossible dreams and desires. Dreams that the Marzotto family has managed to make come true thanks to wines like this one. Manual selection of the grapes before destemming and light crushing, fermentation begins with native yeasts. This is followed by a phase of maceration with punching down and delestage to encourage the extraction of color, maintaining the primary characteristics of the grapes. Refinement takes place in new or second and third passage French oak barrels for 12 months. Then a stay in the bottle for another 24 months is necessary to reach the right balance. The result is a wine characterized by floral and red berry fruit notes. Then roasted hints of wood, bacon, coffee and spicy notes of cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg. Great olfactory satisfaction for a wine that can be enjoyed pleasantly on any occasion.

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.
