Specifically in Sicily, a large amount of arable land is dedicated to viticulture, especially on hills. In this sun-kissed land you can taste white wine such as the Bianco D’Alcamo, dessert wines as the Marsala or the Moscato di Pantelleria.
The most famous Sicilian wine is the Nero D’Avola. Nationally, this wine is also recognized as one of the most important among Italian red wines. Produced mainly near Noto but common everywhere in Sicily, it has a heavier taste if produced in the west area and more delicate and fruitier if produced in the east area of the region.
The Marsala was largely popularized outside Italy by the English trader John Woodhouse and now it is used in many recipes all around the world. In Italy is drunk as dessert wine or used to make rich Italian dessert such as the zabaglione, the popular Tiramisu and shortcakes.
As the Marsala, the Moscato di Pantelleria is a dessert wine exclusively produced, as the name suggests, in Pantelleria, an island in the Strait of Sicily in the Mediterranean Sea. It is usually drunk accompanied with the typical Almond pastries, cannoli, cassata or Pistachio ice cream.
The Wine Tasting Experience is also a splendid opportunity to spend a relaxing time far from the noise of the city and to take home a piece of Italy.
