This wine is made using exclusively Zibibbo grapes, a variety of Egyptian grapes, also known as Moscato d’Alessandria o Moscatellone, introduced in Sicily by the Arabs. Only on the island of Pantelleria, Zibibbo is able to achieve the best quality: large, sweet berries, very intense perfume. Zibibbo vineyards are planted in the “alberello” (small tree) form and quality comes from the careful selection of the grapes, strictly hand-picked in the second decade of August. The grapes are then left to dry for three to five weeks in the sun. The grapes, after the drying process, are pressed and left to macerate with the fermenting must obtained from the grape harvest in September, in order to facilitate the release of perfumes and sugars. A very long and slow fermentation process will follow. After a short stay in oak barrels the wine will then be bottled. The color is golden yellow tending to amber and the flavor is intense, with extensive notes of dates, raisins and acacia honey. The palate is sweet, soft and persistent.
