IGT Terre Siciliane
Bursting with aromas and flavour, Passoluna represents all the warmth, brilliance and exuberance of Sicilian nature. Made from slightly dried grapes, its deep colour and aromas convey our island’s most intense emotions, a land situated in the heart of Mediterranean sea, rich with dazzling beauty, sunny vineyards and treasured vines.
