Made from 60% Malvasia and 40% Trebbiano, the grapes used in the wine are harvested from various estate vineyards in Castellina. After harvest, the grapes are dried and fermentation is carried out slowly in small barrels known as caratelli. The wine is then aged in these barrels for an additional five years.
Brilliant amber in color, this wine offers seductive, layered aromas of roasted nuts, dried apricots, dates, toffee, and spice cake. On the palate, it shows incredible balance with flavors of Macadamia nuts, golden raisins, dried figs, and caramel with a lingering, honeyed finish.
Pair this wine with torrone, sweet cheeses, anise-flavored biscotti, and hazelnut nougat.
