The wine is the dry version of Zibibbo, with it’s pleasant aromas of peach, almonds and orange blossoms. The name Al Qasar, cassaro, is an Arabic word meaning fortress, Castle but also centre, main street. The choice of the Arabic name is dictated by the fact that the fruit from which this wine is made is Zibibbo, an aromatic grape variety imported in our own land from the Arabs. In Patti Piccolo the vineyards of Zibib- bo are heading Southeast, the same as the Mecca for those who seek it from Italy. In Italian language the word “raccolto” has got a double meaning prayer and harvest.
