A fascinating fact about the Zibibbo grape, cultivated on the island of Pantelleria, is that it is essential for the production of the world-famous Passito di Pantelleria, a sweet dessert wine. The Zibibbo grape, also known as Moscato d'Alessandria, is special both for its characteristics and for the way it is cultivated on the island. A unique aspect of the cultivation of the Zibibbo grape in Pantelleria is the traditional technique called "alberello pantesco".
In this method the vines are kept low to the ground, almost embracing it, forming a sort of bush. This technique, which has even been included in the UNESCO World Heritage List, protects the vines from strong winds and excessive heat, allowing the grapes to ripen in an ideal microclimate.
In addition, the volcanic soil and the warm, windy climate of Pantelleria give the Zibibibbo grape a distinctive aromatic profile, with floral and fruity notes, which is beautifully reflected in Passito di Pantelleria, making it a unique and sought-after wine. This combination of vine variety, ancient cultivation techniques and the specific terroir of the island is what makes Pantelleria's Zibibbo grape so special.
