The Zibibbo, from the Arab name Zabib, is the grape used for the production of the famous Passito, the dessert wine which made Sicily renowned in the world of wine.

This was followed by a light pressing without destemming. After the pressing, the must was fermented for 18 days at a temperature of approx. 17˚C. The sweet wine that was so obtained was transferred into French oak barrels, where it remained for approx. six months, before being then blended and bottled. The colour of Muffato della Sala is golden yellow. It is a wine with very intense aromas and taste, characterised by floral and honey-like flavours, followed by fresh, almost citrusy notes.
