Eric Asimov - New York Times It's no wonder that this wine is pungent and perfumed. Zibibbo is the southern Italian name for muscat of Alexandria, one of a notoriously fragrant family of grapes. Mostly, it is made into sweet wine on Sicily and on the island of Pantelleria, but I've seen more dry versions recently. I can't remember seeing zibibbo from anywhere but Sicily, but this one comes from Calabria, the toe of the Italian boot, where Giovanni Benvenuto farms organically. The wine is fragrant, naturally, and goes down easily. Like manyandnbsp;muscats, it's a great summer refresher.
Fresh, flora white fruits, zippy dry finish. Really beautiful wine.
