Kabir Moscato di Pantelleria DOC
From the Arabic term “The Great,” this is the name Donnafugata chose for its Moscato di Pantelleria, for its broad and noble perfumes. The label speaks the language of the island, expressing the colors, the freshness and the aromatic richness of Zibibbo. A label evoking the heroic soul of the viticulture of an island battered by wind and waves.
Kabir is an excellent example of Moscato di Pantelleria DOC, a very pleasant naturally sweet wine made from Zibibbo (Muscat of Alessandria), cultivated in the island of Pantelleria and grown on vines trained using the traditional “alberello pantesco” bush-training system, awarded World Heritage status by UNESCO.
Zibibbo grapes are carefully selected in the vineyard and again in the cellar upon their arrival, before their soft pressing. The fermentation is carried out in steel at a temperature of 14-16 °C, then the wine ages in vats for 2 months and another 3 months in bottle.
Bright straw yellow with golden reflections, Kabir is characterized by a rich and fragrant bouquet with scents of tropical fruit and citrus fruit (orange zest) combined with flowery notes of orange blossom and mineral nuances of flint. The nose is perfectly reflected on the palate, combined with a fresh acid vein that balances the pleasant sweetness well. It finishes with good persistence. We suggest to serve the wine at 10-12 °C. This wine has an ageing potentialvof 5-6 years.
