In the heart of the enchanting island of Sicily, between breathtaking landscapes and a rich cultural history, there is a wine treasure: the Zibibbo. This sweet fortified wine enchants the palates of those lucky enough to taste it, bringing centuries of tradition and a myriad of unique flavors.

The viticulture of Zibibbo is closely linked to the Sicilian landscape. The vines are mainly cultivated in the western regions of the island, where the warm and dry climate favors the development of the bunches. Volcanic soils enrich the mineral profile of the wine, giving it character and complexity.

The production of Zibibbo is an art handed down from generation to generation. After the manual harvesting of the grapes at full ripeness, the grapes are gently pressed to extract the juice. This juice is then fermented slowly, stopping the process before all the sugars turn into alcohol. The result is a sweet and aromatic wine with a higher alcohol content than traditional wines.

Zibibbo is an extremely versatile wine on the table. It goes well with a wide range of desserts, aged cheeses and even spicy meat dishes.

With every sip, you will immerse yourself in the enchanting world of flavors and traditions that make Zibibbo a wine treasure not to be missed.

 

The “CANTINE ERCOLE” line is dedicated to the winemaker Ercole Alagna who still manages the company’s production processes today.

 

His knowledge has allowed us to create wines with high quality ingredients, using unique production processes that create a combination of tradition and entrepreneurial spirit
