The color is bright golden with amber glints; to the nose it shows notes of apricot, fig, date, candied citrus and Mediterranean maquis. In the mouth its sweetness is perfectly balanced by freshness and minerality. Very long aromatic persistence. A wine of great complexity, harmony and elegance, iconic of the heroic viticulture of Pantelleria.
Aging potential: over 15 years.
THE WINE EXPERIENCE
Food & Wine: with blue or aged cheeses, with sweet ricotta cheese desserts. Try it with chocolate, gianduja or 'De Bondt Rye' pralines. Extraordinary alone, as a meditation wine. Serve it in tulipshaped goblets of medium size, slightly bellied; uncork at time of serving; excellent at 14° C (57° F).
Occasions: an extraordinary meditation wine, it's the ideal companion while reading or listening to music. We recommend it as sweet ending of a formal dinner as well as a romantic date.
Art & Wine: from the Arabic term "Son of the Wind" because the wind sweeps constantly around the grape clusters on Pantelleria. And the island's winds bring with them a profusion of fragrances so powerful that you can touch them. An author label telling the love, the care and the effort of heroic viticulture on an island unique and fascinating. A fresh and enchanting portrait that reveals its essence.
