Reviews and Ratings

Zibibbo is the Sicilian name for Muscat of Alexandria. This version is quite aromatic, with aromas of table grapes, nectarines, spring flowers and apricots. Though the nose is intense, the palate is fresh and fairly elegant. There are still good aroma replays, but it is not in the least heavy-handed – it’s well served here by zippy acidity – as this variety can sometimes be. A great wine. Aromatic & Flavourful.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
