    • 750 ml

    This Passito is produced using natural winemaking processes. The three-hectare vineyard is south facing, terraced and prone to dry and windy conditions. In order to survive in this climate, the grapes are grown according to an antique method of planting, whereby the vines grow in shell-like hollows, essential both for protection from the wind and heat and in order to drain the precious nutrients towards the roots of each vine. The island of Pantelleria is well-known for this system of vine growth. The Zibibbo grapes are hand picked from mid-August to mid-September, and are laid outside in the sunshine to dry for 25-30 days. Once the dried grapes have been macerated, this Passito wine is aged in stainless steel for 2-3 years. Grape: Zibibbo 100%

    THE WINERY


    The Winery: Solidea
    Solidea is the pet project of Giacomo D’Ancona, who decided to launch a modern day winery strengthened by a long family winemaking tradition dating back to the 1900s. The estate owns about four hectares of vines located in the southern reaches of the island and besides the Passito and Moscato, it also makes a dry, refreshing white wine called Zibibbo Illios (“Zibibbo” is the other name of the Moscato di Alessandria grape used to make the wines of Pantelleria). While the Passito can be sticky sweet with lovely saline, orange marmalade, raisin and date aromas and flavours, the Zibibbo Ileos is clean and fresh, with zippy acidity and lovely floral and saline nuances.
