Back in 1988, some people viewed it as a lot of work. “It” was the “Zoning Project” undertaken by the owners of La Mura, a winery with hillside vineyards in the Marsala and Salemi areas on Italy’s island of Sicily. And, indeed, the project did involve a great deal of planning and no small measure of sweat. “Just as there are ‘horses for courses,’ it’s obvious that different grape varieties have special preferences with regard to their growing environment,” explains La Mura winemaker Alessio Bandinelli. “So, finding the right ‘zone’ for a vine is the logical first step for cultivating grapes suitable for making great wines.”Now, two-and-a-half decades later, the project has proven its worth many times over. Not only does La Mura grow the right grapes in the right spots, but it does so using Certified Organic methodology. That’s why the 2011 La Mura Nero d’Avola is such a sublime wine.
