Yes, we love geographic U-turns. In this episode of Rare Wines we join two distant lands, not only geographically, but by way of small productions of great sweet wines, which are increasingly difficult to find. Let's start from Sicily, from the beauty of Ustica and its vineyards overlooking the sea, living in the middle of the sea.
Zhabib Passito 2021 was one of the best tastings of recent years, already Sweet Wine of the Year in the 2022 edition of Vini d'Italia. To give continuity to the typology is a capricious but original grape variety, the Moscato Rosa 2020, which produces some wines that are nothing short of refined and complex: this is the case of the version proposed by the Ansitz Waldgries winery, on the hills of Santa Maddalena, in Alto Adige.
