From Zibibbo (Muscat) vines grown on the volcanic (pietra nera) soils of the Mediterranean island of Pantelleria comes this dry white wine from one of Sicily's great fine wine producers: Marco de Bartoli.
Pale in colour, an extraordinary and exhilarating nose intense with musky, grapy, smoky saline, mandarin skin aromas. The result is salivating and penetrating. By comparison, the palate is full and super-refined, even at only 11.5% alcohol. Understated flavours of citrus pith, it is incredibly sapid, due to the proximity of the sea, along with a silk thread flavour profile, and fragrant too.
