Producer’s notes

The golden liquid that flows from the bottle into the glass enhances scents of Mediterranean warmth, while the freshness and sweetness enrapture the sense of taste and carry the taster to distant landscapes filled with sweetly blooming trees, sun and a gentle breeze. Having come to Piacenza from the sea, one of history’s many curious twists and turns, the malvasia is the queen of the wines of this region and finds her perfect expression in this charming, pleasant, spellbinding wine.
