What's in a name? Most people will see Malvasia and immediately think sweet and for Malvasia Bianca they'd more often than not be correct but this is Malvasia Istriana something altogether different. This bone dry wine is fermented on the skins in open top wooden tanks using nothing but wild yeast and then it is aged for 2 years in big wood. This wine is absolutely stunning, an extraordinary persistence in the mouth, with layers of fruit and the classic Carso salty minerality. Have this with grilled Swordfish or a risotto, you'll thank me.
Drink from 2013 to 2017

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. 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. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
