It is straw yellow with green hues. Intense and aromatic on the nose. Floral with notes of wisteria, white rose, jasmine and citrus fruits. Dry, smooth and mineral. Very pleasant on the palate due to a balanced acidity and finally persistent and harmonious. Excellent as an aperitif, perfect with baked fish and excellent also with cheeses.
The variety is 100% Zibibbo. Zibibbo, or Moscato di Alexandria is a wine variety, which has always characterised the production of aromatic and passiti wines in the province of Trapani and the minor islands. Our vineyards can be found mainly on the plateaus and on the hilltops in the inland of Trapani. The soils are of medium texture with a good presence of limestone. The grapes are harvested when the level of ripeness guarantees a good acidity and a aromatic bouquet fresh and fragrant.
The selected grapes are delicately de-stemmed and cold macerated for 4 hours before being soft pressed; the highly perfumed must obtained is cold clarified and fermented at a low temperature for approximately 3 weeks. The refinement continues for at least 4 months on the lees of the fermentation and bâtonnage is carried out in a regular manner. The wine is filtered just before bottling: this allows the wine to keep its intense aroma., increases its elegance and permits a limited use of sulphites.
