Complex and ample sweet wine with an outstanding freshness. On the nose intense notes of apricot and peach follewed by sweet sensations of dried figs and honey, aromatic herbs and mineral notes.

Ripe yellow peach and orange granita notes lead the way in this expressive sweetie. Finely balanced and mouthwatering, with racy acidity and hints of Earl Grey tea, smoke and biscuit accenting the fruit flavors. Builds on the finish. Drink now through 2024. 500 cases imported.-AN

(100% moscato di Alessandria; 14.5 % alcohol): Bright yellow-gold color. Pungent, tangy aromas of orange peel, grapefruit, lime blossom, apricot and sweet spices on the mesmerizingly pure nose. Juicy, intense and penetrating, with razor-sharp acidity lifting and focusing the thick, concentrated grapefruit, honeyed peach, orange peel, cinnamon and ginger flavors. This shows a near-perfect sugar/acid balance, and comes across as light on its feet for such a rich, concentrated wine. The slowly building, palate-staining finish goes on and on, with repeating floral and honey notes. This is always Donnafugata’s best wine, and this vintage is one of their best ever. Readers should be aware that moscato di Alessandria is usually called zibibbo in Italy (which is also its official name, by the way).

Food pairing
Its fragrant sweetness makes it a perfect partner for blue cheeses and foie gras. We also recommend it with ricotta-filled desserts or gianduia chocolate.
