2015 Caravaglio Malvasia Bianco Secca Salina Sicily

SKU #1291811 90 points Vinous

 Pale straw. Easygoing aromas and flavors of lemon, apple and fresh white flowers complicated by a delicate hint of ginger. Bright and juicy, offering noteworthy lift and a strong saline slant to the juicy, long back end. Sneaky concentration here. (ID)  (12/2016)

This grape is becoming very popular in the San Francisco bay area, thanks to a little restaurant called "A16", that has introduced a lot of Southern Italian varietals to its patrons. A bright, fresh wine with pear, lime, lemon peel, toasted hazelnut with a mineral/salty notes on the palate, this is a very food friendly wine.

While many people expect a sweet dessert style Malvasia when coming from Sicily, this wine steps away form the norm in great direction. The tropical fruit is accompanied by rounded weight and is complimented by salty minerality from start to finish. The nose reminds me of a dry Riesling, full of juicy fruit and floral characteristics. Long lived and easy to love white.

From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages.
