Jemara Passito di Pantelleria DOP
Jemara is a natural liqueur wine, with no added alcohol, child of the island of Pantelleria, where the entire production process up to bottling takes place, as production protocol provides for. It is obtained from the Zibibbo grape variety which contains everything this splendid island has to offer: sunshine, volcanic soil, warm African winds. The grapes, once sun-dried, are left to macerate in the must for the entire fermentation process, which confers unmistakable sweet and honeyfied notes.
