Piquentum Malvasia Blanc

Piquentum Malvasia Blanc

From vineyards planted in predominately flysch rich white soil unique to Istria. It was fermented in 100% stainless steel after 2-3 days on the skins resulting in a wonderfull texture and straw yellow color. In further contrast to the coast, this is the rugged truffle ridden and forested interoir that results in an undeniable savory character that is kept in balance by lively acidity. Earthy enough to pair with hard cheeses, bright enough to highlight fresh green herbs, and a medium body that stands up to fish, it’s an ideal food wine for the nearby and perhaps more familiar Italian kitchen.
