Sweet Wines

Sweet Wines

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.
