In the large Malvasia family, the Istrian family occupies a prestigious position. The origin of this vine is rather strange and uncertain: in the Greek region of the Peloponnese, there was a city called Monembasia, area famous for its wines and land of conquest that was also the domain of the Serenissima. It seems that the Venetians spread this grape first to Crete, then to Italy. Today it is cultivated in the whole hilly area of Friuli, in the plain of the graves and along the coast.
It has a straw-yellow color with greenish reflections. Low in alcohol, with a delicate aromatic profile with hints of rose, the scents remain hidden at the first taste emerging during the drink, releasing their complexity in the back-nasal. “Easy drinking”, mineral gypsum taste, pleasant, refreshing and digestible.
Wine for aperitif and light italian appetizers; soups; first dishes (pasta and risotto) with a sauce made of vegetables and fish. Very indicated with fish dishes (especially shellfish) both roasts and sauces.
Serving temperature 10 ° – 12 ° C.
