This blend of Catarratto, Grillo, Damaschino and Inzola is made with strictly selected grapes vinified before fermentation is stopped with the addition of eau de vie so sugar levels remain below 40g/L. This Mistella is then blended with the best DOC wine and aged at least 2 years in French oak casks. The final wine is fortified to 18% alcohol. With toffee and nutty aromas, this wine has rich dry fruit palate flavors. Passito di Pantelleria Muscat of Alessandria, or Zibibbo, grapes are harvested at the end of August and dried naturally before vinification. The 2007 won awards from IWC and was Best Fortified Italian Wine in Decanter. The wine shows complex, elegant dried fruit and apricot aromas with beautiful balance.
