Pantelleria Moscato Liquoroso DOP 2014 Vinisola Cl 50
Great wine for companionship and dessert but so extraordinary to sip on bright nights, sitting in front of the sea bubbling with phosphorescent flashes, with your back against the warm rock of the shining Mediterranean sun.
From the zibibbo grapes comes this wine with a characteristic ripe, golden-yellow grape aroma and a sweet aromatic flavor with an almondy aftertaste. It goes well with almond desserts and aged cheeses. Serve at a temperature of 10°-11° degrees.
