Our Notes: Although not too far from Coronica and sharing the same iron rich “Terra Rossa” and the briny freshness imparted by the Adriatic, there is a completely different exotic almost funky tinge to this wine. While predictably crisp and fresh from the stainless steel fermentation, there is a potent weight to the aromatics counterintuitively suggesting barrel aging and heavy lees stirring. Imagine crossing a barrel aged New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc with a Northern Italian Pinot Gris. If there is any lingering doubt that Istrian Malvasia differs from other Malvasias, here is proof. Pair with fish stew, crudo, baked squash, and egg dishes with aromatic fresh herbs.
