Unico Zelo Esoterico 2021

Esoterico has become the cult wine for Unico Zelo. Not exactly a white wine, nor a red wine, it is best described as an Orange or Amber wine. The process involves three white grape varieties left on their skins (much like red wine) to develop rich aromatics and super zesty flavours. Aware of how drying these type of wines can be the team at Unico Zelo specifically sought Zibbibo (for it’s sweeter aromatics and waxy/oily mouthfeel), Fiano and Moscato Giallo (for it’s spritely acidity). No additions of any kind are made except for sulphur when the wine is bottled. There is no fining or filtration involved, with the wine allowed to clarify by gravity alone, resulting in a slight haze and sediment. There is no preconceived idea of what this wine should taste like, the key driver being one of just pure drinkability, mouthwatering acidity and 'say hello!' tannins. Perfect matched with a variety of spicy foods.

Delivery Times

We aim to to have your delivery with you within 5-7 working days of receiving your order, but often it can be much sooner. If you need your order by a certain date please get in touch and we'll do our best to get it to you as required.


Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 


Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
