Leonardo Zito is a retired winemaker from Sicily that with the help of 3 sons (1 professional sommelier and 2 engineers) and their wives decided to make a good wine from a single vineyard to drink with the family. They soon realised that it was too good not to share! The result is BorgoLeo, the name coming from Borgo Bonsignore (the town where everything started) and Leo after the man himself.

Fermented in stainless steel with natural yeast at controlled temperature.
30% of the wine aged one year in new French oak barrique from Allier (made by Licausi, one of the last remaining coopers in Marsala). The rest of the wine is kept in stainless steel tanks.
This is the first official vintage of the Zito family adventure.
