What I appreciate first of all is the extraordinary aromatic complexity of Passito di Pantelleria and its ability to reveal a concentrated and suave mouth without ever giving in to excessive sweetness. This concept of balance between sugar, acidity and alcohol, which is of fundamental importance in the harmony of sweet wines, is one of the great assets that the Passito di Pantelleria offers.

What's straw wine?

Straw wine, or raisin wine, is a wine made from grapes that have been dried to concentrate their juice. The result is similar to that of the ice wine process, but is a much older process and suitable for warm climates.

The technique dates back to pre-Classical times with wines becoming fashionable in Roman times and in late Medieval/Renaissance Europe when wines such as Malmsey ('Malvasia' originally from Greece) and Candia (from Crete) were highly sought after.

Traditionally, most production of these wines has been in Greece, the islands off Sicily, Cyprus, Northern Italy and the French Alps. However producers in other areas are now using with the method too.
