Zefiro Pantelleria DOC Bianco
Zefiro is a white wine from Pantelleria wine produced by Vinisola winery. It is produced from the Zibibbo grapes (also called Muscat of Alexandria), cultivated as the typical low bunch "alberello pantesco", protected from the winds by the walls of the island. Harvest takes place during the first and second ten days of September. After manual harvesting of the grapes in crates and their destemming, the must is macerated at a controlled temperature of 20 °C for about 24-72 hours. Crushing and fermentation of clean last about 22 days. The wine is aged in steel for at least 6-8 months, with frequent batonnage, before being bottled, for a further refinement of about 2 months.
Zefiro Zibibbo has a straw yellow colour with golden undertones. It has the typical scent of Zibibbo grapes, which is very aromatic, enveloping and persistent. It expresses an enveloping aroma also on the palate, giving a rather persistent almond aftertaste. This wine has an aging potential estimated at 3-5 years. We suggest serving it at 8-10 °C.
