Sensory profile The shimmering gold-yellow presages a wine of superb depth. The nose is notable for its effusion of aromatic white blossoms such as magnolia and jasmine, lifted by subtle, spicy hints of thyme and eucalyptus. After a few moments, the two hallmark qualities of this grape, and of this 2015 Rodaro vintage, ripe mango and nutmeg, emerge and begin a leisurely and lengthy progression. The expansive and alluring bouquet introduces a palate equally rich and complex. A superb body, impressive for this grape variety and a pervasive smoothness testify to the exceptional ripeness achieved by the grapes in this growing season. A tangy minerality is nicely complemented by a full body, leaving space for the development of a lengthy, smooth finish marked by bitter almond.


Pairings Both the bouquet and palate of this Malvasia enhance a wide variety of fish dishes. It is likewise delicious with fresh or steamed vegetables, accompanied with eggs or grains, and truly heavenly paired with risotto with saffron, zucchini, and shrimp, as well as many Asian dishes of noodles and tempura.
