Pantelleria’s nature is as complex as Marco de Bartoli’s was. But he managed, in that wonderfully challenging terroir, to be the first to imagine that Zibibbo grapes could also successfully be vinified as a dry wine. Pietranera’s grapes are grown in the north-facing vineyards of Contrada Cufurà and Contrada Ghirlanda, and produce a dry wine with enviable mineral notes that are aromatic, intense and complex.
It was 1989. This was the first time that such an aromatic, mineral grape variety as Zibibbo could express itself in a dry wine. An innovative wine for Pantelleria, compared to the typical sweet production.
