Zibibbo is the Sicilian name for Muscat of Alexandria and is one of the rarer grapes in the world with a long history that dates back 5,000 years, cultivated in ancient Egypt and brought to Sicily by the Phoenicians.
The front label shows the fight between Orlando and Rinaldo, both in love with Princess Angela in the "Orlando Furioso" epic.
Ambient yeasts are used to allow the grape to express its own very perfumed character. Mesmerizing aromatics of white blossom, honeysuckle and mediterranean herbs found in abundance on the nose. An interesting palate full of ripe peach, candied orange peel, hints of subtle mango with a savoury saline note on the finish, beautifully balanced with a crisp acidity that stands up to the fruit intensity.
Pair with asian stir-fries, sushi or scallops in a cream sauce.
