Sicily produces some excellent sweet wines, of which the most famous is the Moscato di Pantelleria, made from Zibbibo, and the Moscato di Siracusa, made from the white Muscat grape. The sweet Malvasia wine is produced on the island of Lipari. Made from grapes with high sugar content, dessert wines have experienced a resurgence in popularity thanks to modern cuisine. Usually served as a digestive, dessert wines also go splendidly with certain main dishes and entrées.
An elegant dessert wine, Ala was created to satisfy Duca Enrico’s desire to present his wife Sonia with the ideal accompaniment to her passion: chocolate. Garnet red liqueur wine with amber highlights, it has an intense, ethereal bouquet with distinct notes of marasca cherries and hints of almond.
Ambar is produced from a selection of the best Moscato grapes ripened under the warm island sun. This golden nectar has slight amber highlights, an intense bouquet and a full, soft flavour with hints of acacia honey and pleasant underlying notes of dried figs and raisins.
The wine displays its extraordinary personality and depth from the beginning with its color, a bright amber yellow. After the first, intense notes of apricots and peaches, the bouquet ranges through a labyrinth of sweet sensations of dried figs and honey, herbs and mineral notes.

The vines, for long periods close to stress conditions, acquired a rich reserve of polyphenols enhanced by a sunny and airy August which enabled them to...
Description: Entelechia, pure nature-poured nectar, cannot be circumscribed by definition; it is unalloyed emotion, unexpected and enfolding. Entelechia captures the sense and enkindles the mind. The word, of Greek origin, means "the incarnation of what is potential". This wine, we believe, represents the optimal potential of Pantelleria's zibibbo grape.
Hekate was the Greek Goddess who bestowed kindness and wealth. She also acted as a guardian of youth. From Sicily, the land of ancient history, divinity and hidden treasures, Feudo Arancio introduces its new Passito wine. The grapes are dried naturally until they become raisin-like making them highly concentrated with natural grape sugars.
