Quojane di Serramarrocco
100% Zibibbo vinified dry
100% made with Zibibbo grapes, Quojane di Serramarrocco is a true example of the finest expression of the terroir of Serramarrocco.
Vinified as a dry wine, with its opulent and fragrant exotic texture, it strikes out for the complexity of intense Mediterranean classic fruits aromas on a most sicilian bouquet background of jasmine, zàgara and lavanda flowers, intermixed with hints of mint, cedar, rosemary, and green apple in its long fruity finish.
