Barraco Zibibbo MAGNUM
A delightful golden colour, with a bouquet of aromas typical of the Mediterranean winter (bergamot, grapefruit, and lemon), notes of ginger and mint, and hints of tobacco leaves. Plenty of aromatics with baked peach and vanilla, sage, marjoram, minerals, and some saltiness, the touch of skin contact adds some body to it. A structured wine that is dry, complex and spicy.
