Description

A moment of sweetness

Zibibbo is an ancient vine that is thought to have Egyptian origins and was introduced into Sicily and the Mediterranean islands by the Romans; its name, of clear Arabic derivations (zābib), means raisins. This aromatic grape, which is part of the muscat wine family (in fact it is also known as Moscato d'Alessandria), is made over ripen on the plant before being harvested so that the sun can completely dry the water inside the grape, leaving only the residual sugar that will give life, once vinified, to one of the most delicious nectars that we can taste: sweet, persuasive and elegant.

Antique gold in colour, with intense notes of apricot jam, prickly pears, dried flowers and orange blossom honey, on a iodized base. Tasting is sweet but well supported by acidity.

Perfect drunken on its own, it goes well with traditional Sicilian desserts, with ricotta or jam tarts but, above all, with blue or aged cheeses
