Duca di Castelmonte 'Gibele'

Zibibbo Secco, 2012

Italy White

Sicily 75cl

I greatly enjoyed some Zibibbo wines whilst in Sicily, this is another fabulous summer white, made with Zibibbo which is one of the very many clones of Muscat.
The 2011 was a stunner, the 2012 is still lovely but a little lighter.
Really perfumed and grapey, flowery too -very aromatic.
Fresh, zesty and tangy, it's s dry version with grapey flavours, apricot, spice and some lemon zest. Has an almost saline minerally streak runnning through it too. It's delightfully refreshing, full of character and exceedingly easy to drink. Best served as an aperitif or for al fresco drinking, should we ever get any summer...Really delicious.
