Son of the Wind. This splendid wine from Pantelleria could not have been called otherwise, which its intense fragrance can be partly attributed to the sun and to the wind of the island. It has a beautiful bright amber-yellow colour. On the nose is a symphony of aromas: apricots in jam, dates, dried figs, sultanas and candied citrus fruits. On the palate it is a seductive liquid velvet, enveloping, complex and perfectly balanced between sweetness, sapidity and softness. The aromas are persistent. A superb meditative wine. Amazing combined with blue cheeses.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Suckling and Parker
An amazing wine, tasted like sweet apricots soaked in honey with a tinge of alcohol
This is an amazing dessert wine. I often get tired of ports, so this was a refreshing difference. Tasted like sweet apricots soaked in honey with a tinge of alcohol. Was lovely to pair with an olive oil cake.
Dreams of the West Wind
This is about the most original wine you could try. Lovely sweet lingering flavours to go with strong Mediterranean desserts of honey.
Exceptional, exciting nose of apricot, peach and orange zest. Excellent acidity to match sweetness. Very good power with long finish.
Perfect for dessert...
I love this wine. It has the sweetness of the Passito but also with the balance of full flavour. It goes excellent with desserts.
Best sweet wine of Italy
It is heaven in a glass. Dried apricots, raisins, honey and caramel - good acidity to balance off the sweetness. Perfection!!
