This dry style Zibbibo (Muscat d'Alexanderie from Pantelleria - The ancient Cossyra, just 60km east of the Tunisian coast) named for Daughter of the Wind. It used to be conquered by the Arabs, who named the island Bent El Riah (Daughter of the Wind) in Arabic. These vines were trained in extremely low bush to protect them from the strong winds on the island. This wine has the most wonderful aroma! Full floral bouquet with juicy longan, peaches and rose syrup. Probably the best in terms of aroma. The taste however was a little disappointing after smelling it. It was not good tasting with a little soapiness and bitter taste. Silvia convinced me by saying it pairs very well with spicy food. So perfect with the food pairing, I will enjoy it more, especially with such an outstanding aroma! The label is of a mermaid for the mermaid poem by G. Tomasi di Lampedusa.

Winemaker's Notes:

The sapling grapes grown on terraces in Pantelleria are harvested at the end of August, in cooler districts, and with younger vines. After soft pressing of the grapes, the must is fermented at controlled temperatures; the resulting wine ages in the bottle for a minimum 2 months before release to the market

Tasting Notes:

the flower merges with fruit, almond and rosemary. Beautifully caressing, it enchants with the typical features of Zibibbo, pulpy and persistent.
