DIRECTLY IMPORTED FROM ITALY BY AIR
Now here’s a Moscato for Moscato-lovers who prefer a more dry wine, but with the fruit and floral intensity of classic Moscato.
In 1989, after extended success making fine wines in Marsala, Marco de Bartoli decides to start the production of a new wine in the tiny, scirocco-swept island of Pantelleria, located half-way between Italy and Tunisia in the Mediterranean sea.
In keeping with Siciliano tradition, Marco selects the native Zibibbo grapes (a relative of Moscato) and plants them in the northern and more shaded areas of the island, which is much more suitable to the production of white wines and able to confer a higher acidity and lower sugar to the grapes. It is in a 7 acre vineyard in the Cufurà district where Pietranera is born, a dry white wine with an intense aromatic complexity, genuinely one of a kind.
