Zibibbo, also known as Muscat of Alexandria, is a member of the Muscat grape family, and it is stilll widely grown in Australian and South African wine regions, on the island of Samos in Greece, on the island of Pantelleria in southern Italy, and in sweet wines around Málaga (some times blended with Pedro Ximénez), Alicante, Valencia, and the Canary Islands in Spain.

Zibibbo has less of the aromatic intensity of Moscato Bianco (Muscat Blanc a Petits Grains), but itis noted for its delightfully fresh grape aromas and sweet overtones. It is prime material for the production of sweet wines, as well as for steel-fermented dry table wines, and (less frequently) for spumante (light sparkling) styles.
