Malvasia Rustica is produced only in exceptional years, when climatic conditions allow it (a dry autumn without rain). Grapes for this wine are harvested 30 days after the regular Malvasia harvest. Each vine shoot is cut off and left in the vineyard to dry. The grapes are then harvested in shallow wooden crates and transported to the cellar where they are air dried for the next 20 days. The perfect description for the colour of Malvasia Rustica would be liquid gold. It has a strong, noble and complex aroma dominated by dry-candied fruits, honey and caramel. Its taste too is rich, complex and harmonious.
Pair Malvasia Rustica with matured cheese, tuna carpaccio and Cuban cigars.
