Marchesi Mazzei Zisola Nero D’Avola 2018


Bright deep ruby in colour, Mazzei’s Zisola has always been a dependable example of Sicilian Nero D’Avola. The 2018 is particularly full-throttle with inky, dried fruit and fig aromas supported by a veneer of oak. The palate is a delicious mixture of dark fruits with touches of liquorice and raisin underpinned by a river of juicy acidity. It’s softening out a little thanks to a couple of years in the bottle but still delivers good impact before finishing bright with solid length and soft tannins. It screams out for food such as lamb shanks with a tomato-based sauce.
