Malvasia Istriana

Our “lagoon” Malvasia is a single-variety still white wine typical of the area where it is produced. This particularly elegant and fine wine is characterised by a straw yellow colour, floral notes and exotic hints. With the sapidity typical of the clay soil of the area, it is a dry, aromatic and well-balanced wine. A great pairing for seafood dishes and shellfish.
