Grape: Malvasia Toscana
Born from 100% Malvasia grapes, this golden-hued delight was inspired by a book written in 1685 by renown author and scientist, Francesco Redi. Upon reading this praise of the “Malvagia di Montegonzi”, it ignited our 15-years quest to reconstruct this profound, ancient wine. After anlyzing every conceivable detail, our experts we pinpointed a process that closely mirrors historical winemaking concepts. The white grapes are not pressed, but are left to drain naturally. Then the must is the fermented under strict temperature control without the skins, and decanted twice. Next, the wine is briskly fermented for just 2 weeks in French Oak barrels, enough time to impart a very light flavor of vanilla and spice that the wine gently embraces. Finally, Malvasia Bianca is aged a scant six months in the bottle, preserving its freshness. All in all, we belive it to be the most delicious history lesson you’ll ever taste.
