I Vespri – Souflè D’uovo Fondente Pairing – Baglio Di Pianetto
Holiday Perfect Pairing with Baglio Di Pianetto
From Sicily to Sicily. The long journey of Count Paolo Marzotto through wine. From the bottle that the Mother gave him when he was seven years old when, in ’97, he returned to the island as a symbol of a innovative and successful winemaking.
The twenty years since the establishment of Baglio di Pianetto are a story told by the harvests, the wines, the productive evolution of the vineyard, the striving towards a highly refined style of winemaking, the achievement of a perfect balance between tradition and innovation.
