Made from over ripened Zibibbo grapes grown on the island of Pantelleria, this smooth, structured dessert wine opens with heady aromas of dried stone fruit and pressed elderflower. The concentrated but elegant palate offers dried apricot, vanilla, toasted almond and acacia honey that easily support the hefty alcohol.
