Our Notes: In contrast to the iron rich red soil of Terzolo, Štoka, and Coronica, the Piquentum Malvazija is planted in the predominately flysch rich white soil unique to Istria. It was then fermented in 100% stainless steel after 2-3 days on the skins resulting in a wonderfully fine-grained texture and straw yellow color. In further contrast to the coast, this is the rugged truffle ridden and forested interior 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.
