Malvasia Bianca Sammarco
£11.50 – £69.00
Although “Malvasia” is the name of the family of various Malvasia grapes, when used on its own it usually refers to Malvasia Bianca, one of the varietals that stands apart from the rest. The scarcity of rainfall and the soils of calcareous and clayey composition give wines with remarkable body and alcohol content, with intense and surprising bouquets. The dazzling light of long summers, the scents of the sea and the essences of spontaneous flora, carried by the breezes that blow from the coast towards the interior contribute to the formation of their peculiar olfactory character
On the nose: Complex characterised by the fusion of aromatic notes of citrus, pineapple, banana and vanilla. Subtle memories of white-fleshed fruit and aromatic herbs
On the palate: Sweet notes of hazelnut. The taste is clear freshness. Light flavour with hints of fruit and fresh hazelnut and butter combine with a remarkable freshness in the mouth. Soft and pleasant, it closes the tasting with a balanced alcoholic note.
Recommended combination with food: Sea bass carpaccio, sashimi, scallops on saffron cream. Traditionally: stewed Taranto mussels, pasta and dried tomatoes.
