Moscato naturale di Pantelleria DOC - Carlo Pellegrino 1880

Pantelleria, thanks to its traditional alberello vines, poor soils and that beneficial wind that blows constantly, represents a sort of earthly paradise for Sicilian viticulture. Enchanting places where to spend your holidays, splitting your time between the blue of the sea and the colors of the table. The wines are simply unforgettable. Painstakingly crafted by heroic winemakers, they are the ideal end to any good meal. The one offered here by Pellegrino is no exception. Pure Zibibbo grapes, or rather Moscato d'Alessandria, create an elegant and refined natural sweet wine. After the harvest, the grapes are quickly delivered to the winery for processing. At this stage it is vital that everything runs smoothly and that the crates with the bunches remain in the sun for as little time as possible. Vinification takes place in stainless steel at a controlled temperature and, to preserve the natural sweetness of the grapes, fermentation is stopped before the yeasts have a chance to transform all the sugar into alcohol. The temperature is then lowered down to about 3 degrees. The wait is a few months for the wine to reach the right balance. Sweetness and freshness, well balanced, with an aromatic charge that is difficult to find in other parts of Italy. A pleasure to be savored slowly, while eating cheeses, perhaps goat cheese, milk, or enjoying spoon desserts.

It is certainly not an exaggeration to say that Carlo Pellegrino of Marsala belongs to that small group of Sicilian companies that have made the history of viticulture on the island. And at Pellegrino people are so proud of this achievement that they want to pay homage to the fact that the winery boasts over 140 years of history. Its year of foundation, in fact, is 1880. What makes this long journey truly unique, however, is that the ownership has never changed since then. On the other hand, the company's products have or have evolved a great deal. If in the past, Pellegrino was only known for the production of Marsala, nowadays in addition to the traditional fortified wines it added a range of interesting white and red wines and even passito wines, produced with grapes coming from the winery's estate in Pantelleria. Tradition (long) and innovation (a lot) are today the ingredients of its success that translates into a really wide range of products, sold in Italy and worldwide and characterized by an excellent quality-price ratio.
