Notes: Moscato d’Alessandria is originally from Egypt, and was introduced by the Arabs as “zibibbo” in Pantelleria, where almost all of the national production is still grown. Of Arab origin are also the characteristic terraces of the island where the vines are grown. Zibibbo derives from the arab word “Z’bib” which means raisins (dry grape). It is one of the five most aromatic grapes of the world.
Food pairing: An excellent pairing with fish courses smoked fish and fried fish and gourmet salads.
The Domain: The Assuli winery is located in the tranquil town of Mazara del Vallo between the cities of Marsala and Agrigento in western Sicily. Over time, a beautiful company site has developed here, which emerged from a half-timbered complex from the 18th century. Surrounded by rolling hills, modern functionality is combined with a strong connection to the territory. Founded in 1948 by Giacomo Caruso, the winery is now managed by his son Roberto. With energy and determination, the family business tries to promote the principle of identity of the area of origin by increasing the production of Sicilian vines to protect the great aromatic heritage that makes this island so unique.
