Sweet Passito di Pantelleria Zibibbo 2001

I have never had a "passito" before, and the chance to try something unique is fun. This Sicilian wine from 2001 is now a dark, deep brown with accents of amber to gold and showing a lot of age. The strong aroma is of raisins with a faint bouquet of spicy, sweet orange. It tastes syrupy and like raisins with spicy orange accents, and the oily sugar and spice feeling persists very long on my palate. This may be too old to taste like apricots anymore but is nice as a chilled aperitif. Maybe it is just too old overall, but whatever -- it is fun and unique and I would serve it on a sunny late-afternoon. #passito #sicily #2001 #zibbido #moscato #passerillage #strawwine #muscatdalexandrie — 6 years ago
