Why we love it
This white wine is a blend of Viognier and Zibibbo where the elegance of the nose in which the Viognier prevails, is followed by the richness of the Zibibbo in the palate.
Its nose is filled with hints of melon, apricot followed by a rich and smooth palate with orange and pineapple flavours, with a nice acidity and a long finish.
The artisan who made it
Located right in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, on the beautiful island of Pantelleria, there is the Abraxas winery. This is a wondrous paradise, surrounded by crystal clear water and green mountains with truly fantastic weather all year round. Pantelleria is best known for its Moscato di Pantelleria, the most famous Italian dessert wine, produced with Zibibbo grapes left drying outside under the Mediterranean sun. This winery was founded in 1999 when Calogero Mannino, a former Minister of Agriculture, fell in love with the island and made the decision to begin his winemaking adventure with the intention of making wines capable of transmitting the magic of Pantelleria.
