Capofaro Malvasia

Vintage 2018

This is the Malvasia according to Tasca d’Almerita. At the vineyard we try to maintain a wide foliage covering the bunches, in order to protect the grapes from excessive heat exposure and preserve the aroma. Once the grapes are picked, they are stored in a typical Aeolian structure, well ventilated, dry and in the absence of sunlight, where they slowly dehydrate, maintaining a good acidity and a decent alcoholic content.
