Opici Expands Italian Portfolio with Organic Sicilian Wines

By August 3, 2022Connecticut, Top News

Opici Family Distributing of Connecticut via national import arm Opici Wines & Spirits added a selection of six organic Sicilian wines from Baglio di Pianetto, crafted with native varietals. Founded in 1997 by Count Paolo Marzotto, Baglio di Pianetto and now run by the second and third generations of the Marzotto family, the winery provides an immersive hub for guest experiences while crafting its organic offerings. Spanning over 160 hectares of vines, Baglio di Pianetto’s two wine estates lie in opposite corners of Sicily and are opposites in terms of elevation and terroir. The winery is dedicated to sustainable practices and limiting its environmental impact on the planet. It’s also certified sustainable in compliance with EU legislation, which includes water conservation, using renewable energy and reduced carbon emissions. In addition to that, the winery became Certified Organic in 2016. Wines to be imported are all classic Sicilian native varietals, including white wine blends Catarratto, Frappato, Inzolia and Timeo Grillo, flagship red wine Nero d’Avola and a French-inspired red blend called Ramione, each made with high-quality, indigenous grapes.
