Pietranera Marco de Bartoli 2022 Pantelleria DOP White
Pantelleria. Pioneer in a foreign land
An unchallenged nature, “gruff” perhaps like Marco. But from that nature he was able to understand, first, that by vinifying the Zibibbo grapes, grown in the area most exposed to the north, in C. da Cufurà and C. da Ghirlanda, it was possible to produce a dry white wine with distinct mineral notes, aromatic, intense and complex.
How and when the Pietranera.
Pair with shellfish, fish tartare,
oysters, seafood crudités.
Serve at 12-14 °C
