ZIBIBBO SECCO BARRACO 2021 DESCRIPTION

Nino Barraco's Dry Zibibbo is an enchanting elixir that embodies the essence of the sea and the island, standing as a true flagbearer of Sicily. If we were to name an iconic producer in the region, as well as an absolute reference point for the world of artisanal wines, Nino would probably be at the top of the list. This journey has been ongoing for 16 years, during which experimentation and self-critique have always prevailed over self-satisfaction despite results already deemed extraordinary by many enthusiasts. The quest for a precise stylistic balance led Nino to abandon overly long macerations in favour of highlighting the distinctive characteristics of each grape variety and enhancing the refined saline texture that distinguishes his liquids, as exemplified in the case of the Zibibbo, which becomes the perfect union of intoxicating aromatics and essentiality. A top player.

Barraco's Dry Zibibbo is produced from 100% Zibibbo grape vineyards near Marsala. In the vineyard, Nino adopts a methodical and respectful approach, avoiding using any chemical or synthetic substances to preserve the vitality of the rich heritage at his disposal. In the cellar, the process continues with spontaneous alcoholic fermentation and very short maceration on the skins. The liquid matures in stainless steel and is neither filtered nor clarified but only supplemented with a very small dose of sulfur before bottling.

The Zibibbo from Barraco illuminates the glass with its intense golden hue. The nose is dizzying, offering a kaleidoscope of scents that may literally make one's head spin: orange blossoms, apricots, salted capers, fennel, wild herbs. It is a psychedelic mix that might herald an opulent sip, but instead, the liquid surprises those who approach it with an exquisitely refined gustatory dynamism centred around drinkability. The saline finish makes one crave island cuisine; indeed, we can imagine this nectar accompanying a pasta dish with sardines, raisins, pine nuts, and breadcrumbs.
