Malvasia Istriana Collio DOC
This vivacious Malvasia Collio DOC is the perfect expression of Malvasia Istriana coming from the Collio DOC area. It is produced by Villa Russiz winery is a 100% Istrian Malvasia, cultivated on the hills around the estate with variable exposure, but predominantly on the south on entirely marly soil, typical of Collio. The grapes are entirely harvested by hand, perfectly ripe and in the coolest hours of the morning. After a soft pressing of the whole grapes, the obtained must is transferred to fermentation tanks at a controlled temperature. The wine remains on its fine lees for at least 8 months and then it is bottled 8-9 months after harvest.
It has a straw yellow colour with greenish undertones. The bouquet is ample and pleasantly aromatic, from which notes of white flowers and spices emerge, especially of pink and black pepper. We suggest serving it at a temperature of 10-12 °C.
