Pantelleria, between Sicily and Tunisia, is a volcanic island famous for its Muscat – Muscat d'Alexandrie, here called Zibibbo – and its capers. The energy and the wild character of the terroir conquered and inspired the Milanese architect Gabrio Bini, who became a producer of exceptional wines.
Seduced by the unique character of the island of Pantelleria, Gabrio Bini created there during the 90s, in the district of Serragghia, a wine estate which today has 8 hectares, now under the management of his son Giotto (also a producer of capers). Zibibbo dominates, alongside other grape varieties (Catarratto, Pignatello, Carignan, etc.). A single ambition, without any concessions, to produce wines which transcribe the energy and the wild character of the terroir: farming and vinification without inputs, no interventionism, maceration with the skins of the grapes, use of terracotta amphoras (220 l) buried in volcanic soil. In other words, exceptional wines; a total, perhaps even extreme, expression of the land that yields them.
