Moscato di Pantelleria DOC Kabir by Donnafugata

Elegant and balanced interpretation of Zibibbo which denotes a clear and balanced aroma. Splendid aromas of melon and orange peel, rose and honey crown a highly satisfying gustatory impact. It is moderately sweet, fresh and savory and has a contained alcoholic structure. The name Kabir, in Arabic "The Great", is a tribute to the aromaticity of Zibibbo, the nobility of its aromas and the heroic viticulture of Pantelleria put to the test by the wind and waves.
