Golden-tinged yellow. Bright raisin, orange flower and sweet spices on the nose. Then clean and fresh, with fresh citrus and floral flavors that are dense yet light on its feet; this tastes almost as if a little Moscato Bianco had made its way in here. Lovely freshness and juiciness on the long finish. (12.5% alcohol)

Pale straw. Lovely aromatic notes of lychee, white pepper, cinnamon and white flowers. Bright but richly textured, showing sneaky concentration and lovely balance to the tropical fruit and floral flavors. Finishes very long and clean, showing an enticingly spicy sweet and sour component. Knockout wine. Today, Lighea is one of Donnafugata’s best wines, yet it has had a long and checkered history: it was originally made with Müller-Thurgau, then it was turned into a Zibibbo, Inzolia, and Cataratto Comune blend, and finally, since the 2009 vintage, it has been 100 percent Zibibbo. Donnafugata decided to go 100 percent Zibibbo once it planted Moscato di Alessandria on Pantelleria at higher altitudes (400 meters above sea level), in a much cooler microclimate ideal for making fresher, vibrant dry wines. Drinking window: 2016 – 2018. (Ian d’Agata)

Bright straw with gold highlights. Expressive aromas of grapefruit, lemon, raisin and sweet botanical herbs. Juicy and firmly built, offering outstanding intensity and precision to its classic Zibibbo flavors of ripe citrus fruit, raisin and sweet spices. This fresh, vibrant wine finishes with an attractive light touch and lingering mineral nuances. An outstanding dry Zibibbo, which is hardly surprising as the folks at Donnafugata are recognized masters of the variety (Ian d’Agata)

Si conferma quello del Lighea come uno dei profumi effusi da un vino bianco italiano di più pura, limpida e prima fruttosità floreale. Uva insertata di zagara, inossidata e limpida come cristallina. Uno fra i migliori bianchi italiani dacché denso al tatto ed equilibratissimo al sapore oltre che sì stupendamente definito in aroma.
