Malvasia Collio, Borgo del Tiglio

Malvasia Collio, Borgo del Tiglio

The grapes for the production of this dry Malvasia are harvested from old vines. It is a temperamental variety which requires great care in the vineyard to produce the best grapes The berries undergo a brief cold maceration and then are fermented in 250 litre French oak barrels that have already been used once before. It has a marked, yet delicate, bouquet. When the wine is young, it is reminiscent of roses but, as it matures, it becomes more spicy and piquant, with white pepper notes. Balanced and easy on the palate, floral tones and sweet notes of honey appear on the finish.
