Malvasia Canari 50 cl
Prices may vary according to country of residence
This sweet, mature wine is our version of the renowned 17th-century Canary Island wines that were exported to England. The production process consists of combining three batches from the 1956, 1970 and 1997 vintages. These wines were originally made by drying Volcanic Malvasia bunches in the sun (once cut, the grapes were placed on mats for several days) to increase their sugar content through partial dehydration.
The fermentation was interrupted by adding wine alcohol when their residual sugar reached 90 g/L. The vintages then underwent extensive oxidative ageing. The finished product is sold in 50-cl bottles.
Alcohol content: 17%
Residual sugar: 90 g/L
Total tartaric acid: 6.5 g/L
This is the perfect wine for social gatherings in good company, before or after a meal.
- Colour: Amber with lovely orange hues, clear and brilliant.
- Aroma: Rich and powerful, with hints of dried fruits and nuts, liquorice, orange peel and orange blossom. Complex and very persistent.
- Mouth: Embracing, fresh, graceful and easy to drink, with a round warmth thanks to its slight sweetness. Balanced and full bodied due to its acidity.
