Abraxas Passito

Abraxas Passito

This is a sweet wine made from zibibbo grapes (moscato), naturally withered in the sun on Pantelleria. It conserves all the scents and aromas of slowly matured grapes

Scirafi

This is the younger brother of the Abraxas ‘passito’ major and is the result of the first flower. However, the potentiality of raisins already pressed and adequately integrated with
other grapes gives rise to a ‘passito’ which has the same basic characteristics but is still different. As indicated by the analysis paradigm. It is a ‘passito’ full of verve, you could say quite young. In fact it could be the choice of the younger age groups.
The line that Scirafi is following is that of the ‘passito’ with a distinct aroma, a refined taste that gives new life to the old traditions.

Kuddia del Gallo

In the traditions of Pantelleria, the zibibbo has also been used in making dry wine.However,a sweet aromatic grape necessary for this kind of wine gives rise to various problems. What is the sugar residue compatible with a given alcoholic content and with the relative acidity?
The wines that dominate today’s markets have a moderate alcoholic content, a marked acidity and a moderate sweet content, so there was a problem. However, the Company was able to resolve it by implanting a Viognier, Kuddia del Gallo vine in Contrada Randazzo Sidori at 300mt above sea level. [read more]

Kuddia delle Ginestre

Kuddia delle Ginestre, the wine takes its name from the vine and it is the Zibibbo in a pure state. It is however, fermented in barrels and casks.Thr process time is longer and more elaborate because the wine passes from the wooden containers to steel vats and has to proceed through a much longer stabilizing phase. The result is characterised by a minimal sugar residue which determines the particular aspect of this great wine. Great, because it lasts, and overcomes the often discussed concept of young white wine. [read more]

Kuddia del Moro

In the same way also we have the Kuddia del Moro. A particolar vine because the chosen clone is also quite special. From the Mondeuse dell’Alta Savoia(the French wine much appreciated by Stendhal in Grenoble) a clone was selected which then placed the vine among two of the most famous Italian grapes. The Nero d’Avola and the Nebbiola. As chance would have it, this vine is to be found among others on Etna between one Nerello and another and where another company has created a great wine.

Kuddia di Zè

After careful research of the ampelographic basin of Pantelleria by Prof. Attilio Scienza, certain varieties of red grape have been identified. Some have a precise identification, others are derivatives as could be expected from the evolution of nature.
Among the former are the Carignano and the Grenache. These are also to be found in Tunisia and probably come originally from southern France but they can befound in the Priorato in Spain and in Sardinia too.

Siderus

The choice of the Nero d’avola grape for the production of primary Kuddia del Moro, allows the use of other grapes to produce a red wine worthy of note.
With the Nero d’Avola and the cabernet franc, relevant results are obtained from the Pantelleria vines.
