Description 1 of 1

Zibibbo is a wine produced in the Sicilian island of Pantelleria. Ancient Arab settlers brought the aromatic grape, also called zibibbo (“zibib” is Arabic for “grape”) to the island, and this precursor to Marsala has been made there for centuries. The grapes, which are similar in aromatics to Muscat, are left on the vine till they partially ferment in the sun as they raisinate. The resulting wine, also known as Bianco di Pantelleria, has characteristics of fortified wines, but without the addition of brandy, and with lower alcohol. It is straw yellow to amber in color, and managing to be both dry and somewhat sweet at the same time.
