Description

Zibibbo, as it is known locally in Sicily, is the synonym for Muscat of Alexandria. It produces highly aromatic wines and is the local's pride and joy. The vineyards of Colomba Bianca are made up of distinct soil and climate conditions and range from sea-level up to 700 metres above sea level, each terroir imparting subtle complexity into the wine.

For their Vitese Zibibbo, the grapes are hand harvested before soft pressing and fermentation in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures of 15°C to preserve and retain the aromatic profile. This creates a wine that shows lifted notes of succulent white peach combined with soft floral aromatics of orange blossom and jasmine. Bright and light on the off-dry palate with a zesty citrus finish. Try with seafood-based Mediterranean dishes, pastries such as Italian Cannoli.

Established in 1970, Colomba Bianca is the largest Sicilian grower cooperative and the biggest Italian producer of organic wine. Despite their size, they engage a philosophy of micro-viticulture and micro-winemaking to ensure the ultimate precision, quality and expression of terroir. 

Organic and suitable for Vegans & Vegetarians
