Menhir Pantelleria Passito Liquoroso DOP
Menhir is a liqueur wine, with a small addition of alcohol, child of the island of Pantelleria. It comes from the ZIbibbo grape variety which contains everything that this splendid island has: sunshine, volcanic soil, and warm African winds. The grapes, once they are dried, are left to macerate in the must during the fermentation, which is then stopped by the small addition of alcohol.
