Muscat of Alexandria is known as ‘Zibbibo’ in Sicily. This grape is having a fledgling Renaissance in Sicily - only being grown by a few producers, Vito among them.
Orange wine is a type of white wine made by leaving the grape skins and seeds in contact with the juice, creating a deep orange-hued finished product. Typically in white wine production the grape skins are removed.
