Malvasia

Malvasia

Grown almost exclusively on the south side of the island at lower altitudes (150m – 200m), this varietal is the first to be harvested, having an early maturation. The grapes are sweet and produce rich full-bodied wines that are dark in color. On the mouth, the bouquet reveals notes of spices and honey and taste quite wonderful and is usually bottled under the name Malmsey.
